The Secret of No Face (an Ireokwa Epic).
Parker, Everett; Ryan, Kenida (Oledoska)
An attempt to preserve stories from the oral tradition of the Seneca Indians of the Iroquois tribes is made in this volume. These stories draw on the philosophy and moral teachings of Handsome Lake, a Seneca prophet who was a spiritual leader to his people. The purpose of this English translation of Iroquois legends is to go directly to the primary source for information--the storytelling, the prophecies, and the revelation of visions and beliefs, by members of the elder generation, whose duty it has been to pass on the tribal values to the next generation. The Cornhusk Doll, featured in these legends, plays an important part in the life of the Seneca tribe. (PS)
