Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The information for this article was obtained by Martha Champion Randle, a professional anthropologist, chiefly from field work undertaken at the Six Nations Reserve in 1947 and 1950, and to a lesser degree from the written accounts of early observers of the Iroquois (e.g., Morgan). Randle compares the statuses and roles of women in Iroquois society before white contact with those of ca. 1950. There are also data on division of labor by sex, the extended family, women's participation in ceremonial activities, differential effects of acculturation on men and women, childhood education, marriage regulations, and a generaal picture of the Iroquois in 1950.
