Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This work is a comprehensive study of the New Deal and its effects on the Iroquois of New York, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Canada. Much of the data in this document relate to the period in which John Collier served as Commissioner of Indian Affairs (ca. 1933-1941), and his many legislative achievements in promoting the welfare of Native Americans. How these achievements were implemented on behalf of the Iroquois is the primary subject matter of this book. Topics given particular attention in the text are: the Iroquois concept of sovereignty, the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, tribal reorganization and the Indian New Deal among the Oneida of Wisconsin and the Seneca-Cayugas of Oklahoma, community action programs among the New York Seneca and Mohawk (e.g., National Youth Administration Project, and the Civilian Conservation Corps - Indian Division, the Seneca Arts Project), and the Oneida (Wisconsin) Language and Folklore project. Scattered throughout the book are brief biographical sketches of individuals who played a significant part in instituting various programs for the Iroquois -- Alice Lee Jemison, John Collier, William Fenton, and Arthur C. Parker.
