A Spatial History of Iroquoia, 1666-1777

This study of Iroquoian movement contends that commitment to spatial mobility and its exercise circa 1666 to 1777 allowed Iroquois people to retain far greater degree of external political influence and internal social cohesion than historians have hitherto acknowledged or understood. Mobility supported a broad repertoire of cultural tools to confront the challenges and opportunities posed by settler colonialism in ways that would become substantially more difficult after the American Revolution, when spatial confinement on reservations constricted the creative role of mobility in Iroquois society and marked them as colonized peoples.
