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[masked]
