Legends, Traditions, and Laws of the Iroquois, or Six Nations, and History of the Tuscarora Indians was written by Elias Johnson a native Tuscarora Chief. Johnson has written this book in the hope of establishing a better relationship between his race and the white man. Elias Johnson says he is able to understand the people he writes about because as he says in his preface. I was born and brought up by Tuscarora Indian parents on their Reservation in the Town of Lewiston, N.Y. From my childhood up was naturally inquisitive and delighted in thrilling stories, which led me to frequent the old people of my childhoods days, and solicited them to relate the old Legends and their Traditions, which they always delighted to do. I have sat by their fireside and heard them, and thus they were instilled upon my young mind. Johnson describes characteristics, traits, customs and life in the Indian tribes.
