Drawing on George SiouiAEs Amerindian Autohistory, author Susan M. Hill uses the tools of autohistory to examine the historical relationship of the Haudenosaunee and the Grand River Territory. Hill combines ideas from law, philosophy, and history with the voices of Native Americans found in court documents, testimonies, and interviews. The first part of the book chronicles Haudenosaunee cultural history and relationship to the land. Part 2 focuses on Haudenosaunee land tenure in the Grand River Territory. B&w maps are included. Distributed in the US by Michigan State University Press. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
