Tuscarora Village, NY:
Lewiston, Niagara, and Co., 1828.

Cusick, a Tuscarora, was responsible for this version of important Iroquois oral traditions, including the stories of the origin of the world and of the Iroquois League. This text is one of the first written appreciations of a North American Indian culture produced by an Indian. The illustrations are probably based upon ones made by Cusick or his brother Dennis.
