Nations of the Eastern Great Lakes

This book is one in the Native Nations of North America series. It introduces the indigenous people who lived between Lake Huron and Lake Ontario and the area east of Lake Ontario. This was a region of many plants, animals, rivers and lakes. It consisted of two main confederacies, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat. These nations spoke the Iroquoian language. The book covers the years between the late 1500s and early 1600s. The reader is introduced to the village life, government, family relationships, obtaining food, trade between nations, changes with the seasons, contact with the Europeans and conflicts. Informative and easy to use, each chapter features a double spread with text, colour illustrations and captions of related information. A glossary is included.
