Anthony Wonderley is Nation Historian, Oneida Indian Nation of New York. Series: The Iroquois and Their Neighbors. Drawn largely from early twentieth-century journals by non-Indian scholar Hope Emily Allen.

The folktales and myths of the Iroquois and their Algonquian neighbors rank among the most imaginatively rich and narratively coherent traditions in North America. Mostly recorded around 1900, these oral narratives preserve the voice and something of the outlook of autochthonous Americans from a bygone age, when storytelling was an important facet of daily life. Inspired by these wondrous tales, Anthony Wonderley explores their significance to the Iroquois and Algonquian religion and worldview.

He explores uniquely Iroquois components in Oneida oral narrative as it existed in the early twentieth century

He explores uniquely Iroquois components in Oneida oral narrative as it existed in the early twentieth century. Drawn largely from journals by non-Indian scholar Hope Emily Allen, the book includes newly discovered field notes - documents of an oral tradition no longer extant - and opens a door on the golden age of Iroquois folklore (ca. 1880-1925). What Allen was able to document around 1920 was normally hidden from white eyes," writes Wonderley. The fact that Oneida informants opened up to Allen at all was a unique occurrence and one only briefly possible.

He is the author of Oneida Iroquois: Folklore, Myth, and History and At the Font of the Marvelous: Exploring Oral Narrative and Mythic Imagery of the Iroquois and Their Neighbors.

This is the first major book to explore uniquely Iroquois components in the Native American oral narrative as it existed around 1900. Drawn largely from early twentieth-century journals by non-Indian scholar Hope Emily Allen, much of it has never before been published. Even as he studies time-honored themes and such stories as the Iroquois myth of the beginning, Anthony Wonderley breaks new ground examining links between legend, history, and everyday life. He pointedly questions how oral traditions are born and develop. Uncovering traditional tales told over the course of 400 years, Wonderley further definesand considersendurance and sequence in mythic content. Finally, possible links between Oneida folklore and material culture are explored in discussions of craftworks and archaeological artifacts of cultural and symbolic importance. Arguably the most complete study of its kind, the book will appeal to a wide range of professional disciplinesfrom anthropology, history, and folklore to religion and Native American studies.
I haven't finished the book, but it traces Oneida folklore very well. I am interested in learning more about my ancestors and this story telling method is intriguing.
would definitely recommend it - and will share it with Native Americans (Oneidas) in my family tree - A GREAT GIFT!
