Dispossession of the Haudenosaunee: A Chronology in Maps

Hosted by: Petit Branch Library

The arrival of Europeans changed the lives of the Haudenosaunee irrevocably. With the Europeans came cultural and religious conflicts, European diseases, and economic upheaval. During the discussion we will use maps from 1720 to the Red Power movement of the 1970’s to trace the disposession of the Haudenosaunee.
