    Excerpt from Hiawatha and the Iroquois Confederation: A Study in Anthropology

    It is well known that the Iroquois tribes, whom our ancestors termed the Five Nations, were, when first visited by Europeans, in the precise condition which. According to all the evidence we possess, was held by the inhabitants of the Old World during what has been designated the Stone Age. Any one who examines the abandoned site of an ancient Iroquois town will find there relics of precisely the same cast as those which are disinterred from the burial mounds and caves of prehistoric Europe, - imple ments of ¿int and bone, ornaments of shells, and fragments of rude pottery. Trusting to these evidences alone, he might sup pose that the people who wrought them were of the humblest grade of intellect. But the testimony of historians, of travellers, of missionaries, and perhaps his own personal observation, would make him aware that this opinion would be erroneous, and that these Indians were, in their own way, acute reasoners, eloquent speakers, and most skilful and far-seeing politicians. He would know that for more than a century, though never mastering more than five thousand fighting men, they were able to hold the bal ance of power on this continent between France and England.
