9780803217768: Iroquois on Fire: A Voice from the Mohawk Nation

In their homelands in what is now New York state, the Iroquois have assumed a prominent role in public debate as residents of the region seek ways to resolve multibillion-dollar land claims. The initial dispute over territorial title has grown to encompass gambling, treaties, taxation, and what it means to claim Native sovereignty.
Written from an Iroquois perspective, Iroquois on Fire is an in-depth study of the historical and social issues raised during the Iroquois’ long struggle over disputed territorial titles. Douglas M. George-Kanentiio, a member of the Mohawk Nation and an activist for Native American claims, details the history of his nation from initial contact with the Europeans through the casino crises. As a key figure in the events of the last two decades, he uses his personal story to highlight issues of public interest: the land, family and community, geography, federal interference in tribal affairs, religion, political activism, land use/claims, and connections to organized crime. Though the story he tells is important in and of itself, it is rendered even more so because the interaction between New York and the Iroquois will surely affect the ways in which other states and the Natives who live in them address similar issues.

Descripción University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London, 2008. Softcover. Estado de conservación: New. 168 pages. Softcover. New book. NATIVE AMERICANS. In their homelands in what is now New York state, the Iroquois have assumed a prominent role in public debate as residents of the region seek ways to resolve multibillion-dollar land claims. The initial dispute over territorial title has grown to encompass gambling, treaties, taxation, and what it means to claim Native sovereignty. Written from an Iroquois perspective, Iroquois on Fire is an in-depth study of the historical and social issues raised during the Iroquois' long struggle over disputed territorial titles. Douglas M. George-Kanentiio, a member of the Mohawk Nation and an activist for Native American claims, details the history of his nation from initial contact with the Europeans through the casino crises. As a key figure in the events of the last two decades, he uses his personal story to highlight issues of public interest: the land, family and community, geography, federal interference in tribal affairs, religion, political activism, land use/claims, and connections to organized crime. Though the story he tells is important in and of itself, it is rendered even more so because the interaction between New York and the Iroquois will surely affect the ways in which other states and the Natives who live in them address similar issues. Douglas M. George-Kanentiio was born and raised in Akwesasne Mohawk Territory. An award-winning writer and journalist, he has served the Mohawk Nation in numerous capacities, including as a land-claims negotiator, a cofounder of Radio CKON, and the editor of the news journal Akwesasne Notes. He is the author of the books Iroquois Culture and Commentary and the coauthor of Skywoman: Legends of the Iroquois. Vine Deloria Jr. (1933-2005) is the author of more than twenty books, including Custer Died for Your Sins, God Is Red, and We Talk, You Listen: New Tribes, New Turf, available in a Bison Books edition. "George-Kanentiio, a Mohawk journalist, tells from firsthand experience what forces have conspired to pull the Iroquois apart as a culture, a confederacy, and within each component nation. Christianity and the hegemonic policies of the US and Canada are to blame, but also the greed of Iroquois individuals. Rather than heeding the Code of Handsome Lake, developed in the 1800s, or the modern wisdom of Ray Fadden, some Iroquois in the 1980s sought personal wealth and local autonomy through gambling operations. . . . In 1990, when Mohawks, including the author and his relatives at Akwesasne, tried to stop casinos in their territory, self-proclaimed warriors met them with violence, to which they responded in kind. Two men died. The author was accused and acquitted in one count of second-degree murder. The book's warning is heartfelt and compelling. Highly recommended."ÑChoice "Former Cherokee Nation Chief Wilma Mankiller calls Iroquois on Fire 'an extraordinary description of the struggles, conflict and determination of traditional people.' . . . If you are interested in contemporary issues among Native Americans, this book gives them to you, intimately and with passion."ÑConnecticut Post Online "Iroquois on Fire is a profound and courageous work. In this book, the author has set the stage for those with the courage and honor to no longer be passive observers or victims, but instead to take the stage and write the future. I recommend this book to all who can read."ÑLeslie Lo Baugh (Key Words: Iroquois Nation, Douglas M. George-Kanentiio, Vine Deloria Jr., Native Americans, American Indians, Iroquois Indians, New York, Territorial Claims, Land Claims). book. Nº de ref. de la librería 65905X1
