Editorials News | Aug-14-2017
Insights have been captured on Iroquoian population’s power in 16th century through ancient pottery. A recent study showed that how decorations on ancient pottery can be used to find new clues for how groups interacted across large regions. The study got published in the journal Science Advances.
This innovative research was conducted by John P. Hart who is the Director of Research and Collections at the New York State Museum. Other researchers who worked on it were Jennifer Birch, Assistant Professor at the University of Georgia and Christian Gates St-Pierre who is the Assistant Professor at the University of Montreal. The research sheds new light on the significance of a little-understood Iroquoian population in upstate New York. It also focused on its impact on relations between two emerging Native American political powers in 16th century.
Iroquoins in northeastern North America are recognized for the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) and Wendat (Huron) alliances in upstate New York and Southern Ontario. These are the very early records of both the groups.
