    Why it took me a month to read this book Having been born and raised in Western and Central Upstate New York I was weaned on Irouoian or Haudenosaunee culture I always had thought that the Algonuin tribes were just a minor subset of the Six Nations Confederacy Why not? Since the Irouois had ruled and held sway over uebec New York and Pennsylvania for so long Imagine reading Arch Merrill's Land of the Senecas at the base of Bare Hill above Canandaigua Lake the birthplace of the Senecas at an early age Visiting the old French Fort Sainte Marie Among the Irouois growing up in Syracuse every few months along with freuent trips to the other Irouois reservations as well as trips to Montreal and uebec certainly cemented the image of the Irouois as the predominant First Nations people in my mind I was so amazed at this author's deep knowledge and stories of the original natives of New York that I ended up pulling up maps of the downstate area during the time frames he discusses while I read the passages to visualize the trails paths and communities that the Algonuins had created I have been completely enad of the Algonuins and their contributions and benefits to our society and culture that they have given us over the centuries

    Difficult to read because it is so full of details way than my mind can absorb Nonetheless Native New Yorkers certainly had a profound effect on me a New Yorker for the past 9 years and a resident of greater NYC area for most of my life I never realized how very long the Algonuin lived in NY area before the Europeans arrived And I never knew how widespread they were Never knew how very many geographic names names today come from the Algonuin And I never knew how horribly they were treated by the dominant Europeans on the East Coast I associate terrible treatment with “The West” So I am grateful to the author for greatly raising my consciousness about Native American issues in my own back yard

    As a Central New Yorker who spent a few years living down in the city I was fascinated to read about the Lenape people who occupied The Big Apple before it became the Big Apple Unfortunately as one reviewer pointed out the book is a catalog of facts with very little story line Very interesting but wonky to follow A few glaring omissions 1 The author repeatedly stressesinsinuates that Algonuin still occupy NYC and the boroughs Why didn't he interview anyone? I would have loved to hear from Native Americans who survived the plague wars eradications and chose to make their home in this Iron Jungle today 2 There needed to be WAY maps in the book There are chapters that lead the viewer street by street through the boroughs talking about what used to be there One tiny map of the whole Metro NYC area doesn't cut it Too hard to follow 3I've read claims by several other Algonuin scholars that this book is far from accurate and the author has re written a bit of history here Hmmm 4 Author mentions repeatedly that very little evidence of the Algonuins has survived so much of it was buried under tons of concrete and landfill but he touches on a FEW finds and that's it Doesn't really give them a lot of page room which was odd SO for all those reasons I give this book 3 stars

    I've marked this book as read when sadly I did not complete it The topic is interesting the legacy of the Algonuin People of New York As someone who both loves New York and has a deep appreciation for the Native American people who lived here before the white settlers I am fascinated by the interaction of the groups and the remnants of culture that survive through customs names or even just stories passed down from generation to generation I wanted to appreciate this book as much as I appreciate the people and the location After nearly a hundred pages out of a weighty 382 before appendices I had to stop reading I found no narrative flow it was merely a listing of poorly organized facts a few rants and a few stories that seemed to have no relation to the facts placed near them on the page I may go back and try to read some of this book but I tend to doubt it I was uite disappointed in this tome

    Humbling Fascinating insightsDense with references to the native people and their prosperity and connection with the land plant life and animals Many maps are referenced comparable to todayIt takes a while to read process then re read the chapters A view of the world through a Native American's regional research and family history

  6. Sheila Sheila says:

    This is an amazing book It's New York history from the Native point of view and it will challenge every romantic myth you've grown up with Everyone should read it adults and young people too
