Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The 'Iroquois Struggle for Survival' describes the history of the Six Nations from the period of about 1940 to the 1980s, presenting in much detail both the historical origins of the renewed sense of Iroquois nationalism and its long-range consequences. (For information on the earlier cultural history of the Iroquois with particular reference to the New Deal era of ca. 1933-1940, see 56: Hauptman in this file). This document discusses the role of the Iroquois in World War II, the attempt by the federal government to terminate their responsibility to and care of Native Americans in the post-war period, the various government sponsored public works projects (e.g., the Kinzua Dam, the St. Lawrence Seaway, the creation of the reservoir at Tuscarora) and the courageous fight of the Iroquois to save their tribal lands, and receive just compensation through the courts for lands already lost (Oneida). The author suggests that contemporary Iroquois political activism (Red Power) may be the result of social and political pressures that evolved from their struggles with the government which led to a sense of cultural unity and new nationalistic aspirations.
