The Cayuga are one of the original five nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, a powerful alliance of Native American tribes in the Northeast, inhabiting much of the land in what is now central New York State. When their nation was destroyed in the Sullivan-Clinton campaign of 1779, the Cayuga endured 200 years of displacement. As a result, relatively little is known about the location, organization, or ambience of their ancestral villages. Perched on a triangular finger of land against steep cliffs, the sixteenth-century village of Corey represents a rare source of knowledge about the Cayuga past, transforming our understanding of how this nation lived.

In Corey Village and the Cayuga World, Rossen collects data from archaeological investigations of the Corey site, including artifacts that are often neglected, such as nonprojectile lithics and ground stone. In contrast with the conventional narrative of a population in constant warfare, analysis of the site's structure and materials suggests a peaceful landscape, including undefended settlements, free movement of people, and systematic trade and circulation of goods. These findings lead to a broad summary of Cayuga archaeological research, shedding new light on the age of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the role of the Cayuga in the American Revolution. Beyond the comprehensive analysis of artifacts, the Corey site excavation is significant for its commitment to the practice of ""indigenous archaeology,"" in which Native wisdom, oral history, collaboration, and participation are integral to the research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Rossen well situates the political impact

of archaeological research on contemporary

indigenous communities and realizes

a model for changing the relations between

scholars and the descendants of the

people who lived in the sites they dig.--Kurt Jordan, associate professor of anthropology and American Indian studies, Cornell University


This volume makes a significant contribution

to Cayuga archaeology through the

thorough analyses of the various artifact

categories recovered at the Corey site. It

will inform regional syntheses for many

years to come.--Lisa Marie Anselmi, associate professor and chair of anthropology, SUNY Buffalo State


A richly informative historical account of the thriving Cayuga
world through the perspective of the Corey site, a dynamic sixteenth-
century village on the eve of European contact. This study
fills a void as it is the first book published on Cayuga archaeology.--Jordan E. Kerber, professor of anthropology and Native American studies, Colgate University
