Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
According to Foley, much of the information that exists on
the Iroquois is based on the early writings of the Jesuit Fathers and colonial chroniclers,
and further supplemented by the ethnographies of Morgan, Beauchamp, Parker, Hewitt,
Goldenweiser, Fenton, Speck, Shimony, Myers, and Weaver. Prominent social theorists such as
Marx and Engles utilized portions of Morgan's research on the Iroquois to develop theories
on the origin of the state and class structure. This dissertation '…attempts to synthesize
and place the various primary sources and secondary works in historical perspective in
order to delineate specific factors affecting the processes of change' (p. i) from the
aboriginal precontact period to the mid-1970s.
