In this book, Rice offers a comprehensive history based on the oral
traditions of the Rotinonshonni Longhouse People, also known as the
Iroquois. Drawing upon J. N. B. Hewitt's translation and the oral
presentations of Cayuga Elder Jacob Thomas, Rice records the
Iroquois creation story, the origin of Iroquois clans, the Great
Law of Peace, the European invasion, and the life of Handsome Lake.
As a participant in a 700-mile walk following the story of the
Peacemaker who confederated the original five warring nations that
became the Rotinonshonni, Rice traces the historic sites located in
what are now known as the Mississippi River Valley, Upstate New
York, southern Quebec, and Ontario. The Rotinonshonni creates from
oral traditions a history that informs the reader about events that
happened in the past and how those events have shaped and are still
shaping Rotinonshonni society today.
