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.
