Hierarchical Path: Seven Years War (Main Page) >> Armies >> Native American Peoples

Laurence Burrows has recently published a book on the dress of several Iroquoian Peoples of the North East Woodlands between 1600 and 1800

This book by Laurence Burrows provides an extensive review of the vibrant clothing, hairstyles and accoutrements of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). Wendat (Huron) and other Iroquoian speaking peoples of the northeast woodlands of North America during the 17th and 18th centuries. Dress and how one appeared was important to Iroquoians and displayed an individual’s belonging to a community, her or his relationships to clan, and the spiritual and natural world around them. Descriptions record changes in materials and fashion as Iroquoians met, adapted and evolved in the face of contact with Europeans, maintaining their cultural identity and values throughout the period and beyond into the present day.

This 234 pages book is available from Amazon.
