The federated Iroquois tribes were absolutely central to the long struggle between the British colonists in eastern North America, and the French and their client tribes. They fought many exciting frontier campaigns, and were generally loyal allies of the British for 200 years from the late 16th century. They provided the redcoats and colonial militias with an invaluable scouting and raiding element, right up to the end of the American War of Independence in 1782, when the Mohawks trekked to new lands they were given in Canada by a grateful Crown. The Iroquois had a rich and individual material culture which is beautifully illustrated in this book.
