Iroquois Perspectives on the American Revolution

The Iroquois Indians (Hotinonshionni) refer to the American Revolution as the "whirlwind" in their oral tradition. The Six Nations were dramatically affected by the war and its consequences. These native peoples found themselves pulled by both the Patriot and British sides. On Wednesday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m., Laurence Hauptman, Distinguished Professor of History at SUNY New Paltz, presents the war from diverse Iroquois perspectives. This program is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities' Speakers in the Humanities program. Please pre-register online at or call 359-3877.

    A fascinating and mostly neglected slice of American history presented by a scholar who clearly has great affection for his subject. Like every group, Native Americans have their own history, but it is also the history of all of us. It isn't always beautiful, but it's vital to know.

    Michael and Jerry - I moved you to the main list, so you should see the notification to indicate that you are registered for tomorrow's event on the Iroquois Perspectives. I held spaces for all the attendees who registered on Meetup prior to closing the RSVPs, so you are both good. I think everyone else registered online on our site except Grant, but Grant - feel free to join us tomorrow too. Sincerely, Jill

    Wupps, I just tried to pre-register and ended up on the waiting list. I had thought the registration was just pro-forma. Guess we'll see what happens.
