Who We Are
Greetings to one and all. "Iroquois History & Legends" is hosted by Andrew and Caleb Cotter, brothers from Canandaigua, New York with an affection for history. Growing up they both had a fondness for Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) stories and fables. After doing a lot of reading on early American and Canadian history they found that the Haudenosaunee were at the center of it all and yet school text books leave their contributions out almost completely. Therefore Andrew and Caleb began this podcast to show how the Six Nations were in the mix and influenced almost all major events in the 17th, and 18th centuries.
Who We Are Not
Andrew and Caleb are not endorsed by any indigenous nations or peoples. They are just two guys looking to learn and share with the world an often overlooked piece of history.
Join them as they learn about the Haudenosaunee and their dealings with the European powers.
If you would like to read more about the Haudenosaunee check out our bibliography for more resources. (More titles will be added shortly)
