Handsome Lake was born in the Seneca village of Ganawagas on the Genesee River in 1735. Recovering from alcohol-induced illness, he created a code to strengthen his people against the effects of white society. The code helped unify the Iroquoian community during the American War of Independence. Now, two centuries later, the issues of native self-government and a renewed pride in native traditions are creating new interest in the code, available in English only in this edition. Book jacket.
