Huron-Wendat: The Heritage of the Circle
"Sioui first reviews the Wendats Creation mythology and explains their origins, migrations, theology, ethics, philosophy, oral literature, and sociology, as well as their role in Amerindian geopolitics. He then looks at archaeology and its role in combating centuries of negative attitudes toward Amerindians. He concludes with a detailed description of Wendat society from an Amerindian viewpoint over the span of the last 1,000 years, concentrating on the period between 1615 and 1650 and drawing on traditional ethnographic documentation in the reports of missionaries and early French explorers."--BOOK JACKET.
