Talking Animals and Medicine People: The Supernaturalism of the Upstate Iroquois
One of the world’s most impressive storytelling traditions is that of the six New York Iroquois nations. The Longhouse folk who call themselves Hodenosaunee populated the hills, woods and creeks of the upstate with a virtual zoo of supernatural beings, and their imaginations thrilled to stories of human ghosts and witches. These ancient traditions have parallels in 20th and 21st century paranormal report on their former territory. Join us for lecture and storytelling of this unjustly overlooked tradition.
