Dispersed But Not Destroyed

"Situated within the area stretching from Georgian Bay in the north to Lake Simcoe in the east (also known as Wendake), the Wendat Confederacy flourished for two hundred years. By the mid-seventeenth century, however, Wendat society was under attack. Disease and warfare plagued the community, culminating in a series of Iroquois assaults that led to the dispersal of the Wendat people in 1649. Yet the Wendat did not disappear, as many historians have maintained. In Dispersed but Not Destroyed, Kathryn Magee Labelle examines the creation of a Wendat diaspora in the wake of the Iroquois attacks. By focusing the historical lens on the dispersal and its aftermath, she extends the seventeenth-century Wendat narrative. In the latter half of the century, Wendat leaders continued to appear at councils, trade negotiations, and diplomatic ventures -- including the Great Peace of Montreal in 1701 -- relying on established customs of accountability and consensus. Women also continued to assert their authority during this time, guiding their communities toward paths of cultural continuity and accommodation. Through tactics such as this, the power of the Wendat Confederacy and their unique identity was maintained. Turning the story of Wendat conquest on its head, this book demonstrates the resiliency of the Wendat people and writes a new chapter in North American history."--Publisher's website.

Dispersed But Not Destroyed

Dispersed But Not Destroyed

Abstract: This dissertation examines the creation of a Wendat diaspora in the wake of the Iroquois conquest of 1649. Through the prisms of leadership, women, and North American systems of power, it explores moments of resistance pre-dispersal, traces the relocation process, and investigates the calculated re-settlement of Wendat refugees. It includes chapters on seventeenth-century epidemics, ritual practices, warfare, alliance-making and religious conversion. I link research on the seventeenth-century Wendats to the present by incorporating investigations into the perpetuation of the "destruction" myth in modern Canadian, American and Wendat societies, as well as an analysis of the re-instatement of the Wendat Confederacy in 1999. Overall, by going beyond the collapse of the political and geographic configurations of the pre-1649 Wendats and focusing on the persistent use of Wendat identity until the turn of the eighteenth century, I argue that although the Confederacy and Wendat Country may have disintegrated mid-century, the Wendat people, along with their culture, beliefs and diplomatic power remained intact, creating a diasporic polity within the Great Lakes region.

From Huronia To Wendakes

From Huronia To Wendakes

From the first contact with Europeans to the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, and the War of 1812, the Wendat peoples have been an intrinsic part of North American history. Although the story of these peoples—also known as Wyandot or Wyandotte—has been woven into the narratives of European-Native encounters, colonialism, and conquest, the Wendats’ later experiences remain largely missing from history. From Huronia to Wendakes seeks to fill this gap, countering the common impression that these peoples disappeared after 1650, when they were driven from their homeland Wendake Ehen, also known as Huronia, in modern-day southern Ontario. This collection of essays brings together lesser-known historical accounts of the Wendats from their mid-seventeenth-century dispersal through their establishment of new homelands, called Wendakes, in Quebec, Michigan, Ontario, Kansas, and Oklahoma. What emerges from these varied perspectives is a complex picture that encapsulates both the cultural resilience and the diversity of these peoples. Together, the essays reveal that while the Wendats, like all people, are ever-changing, their nations have developed adaptive strategies to maintain their predispersal culture in the face of such pressures as Christianity and colonial economies. Just as the Wendats have linked multiple Wendakes through migrations forced and voluntary, the various perspectives of these emerging scholars are knitted together by the shared purpose of filling in Wendat history beyond the seventeenth century. This approach, along with the authors’ collaboration with modern Wendat communities, has resulted in a rich and coherent narrative that in turn enriches our understanding of North American history.

Between Man And God

Between Man And God

Sicker attempts to deal with the awesome question, "Where was God at Auschwitz?" and with it some of the related central issues of Judaic thought and belief that have come under critical challenge. He argues that traditional non-dogmatic Judaic theology does not require radical revision but a sympathetic understanding of its assumptions and ideas and a desire to reformulate them in more modern terms.
