Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This dissertation presents an interpretive study of the
efforts of the Mohawk Iroquois traditionalists to build cultural and political awareness in
the community of Akwesasne (St. Regis Reserve/Reservation) situated on the U.S.-Canadian
border. Ciborski notes that Mohawk conceptions about Iroquois culture, their relationship
to the dominant (non-Indian) society, and the continuing struggle to solve serious social
and economic problems in the community, are significant contributing factors to the
continuence of Akwesasne traditionalism. 'The author argues that the cultural expression
and national aspirations of Akwesasne Mohawk traditionalists are a form of cultural
nationalism insofar as they are responses to the experience of internal colonialism, a
structural relationship to the dominant society suffered by other U.S. racial minorities '
