Oneida Iroquois: Folklore, Myth, and History
Newly discovered Oneida folklore sheds light on a rich yet nearly forgotten body of Native American verbal literature and how oral traditions are born and develop. Uncovering traditional tales told over the course of 400 years, the author further defines and considers endurance and sequence in mythic content.
Finally, possible links between Oneida folklore and material culture are explored in discussions of craftworks and archaeological artifacts of cultural and symbolic importance.
