Who is Andrew John?


In stock

Who is Andrew John? is a book that details the political lives of two Cattaraugus Territory Seneca Leaders, father and son; Andrew John Senior and Junior. Chapter one will summarize major political issues every Seneca politician and member faced in the 19th century and into the 20th century. They are treaties and rights of preemption, Seneca Nation political revolution, emergence of private property, leasing, severalty (allotment) legislation/Indian removal policy, and federal citizenship legislation. Chapters two and three will provide a historical and political biography of the father and son. In addition, the appendices provide a genealogy of Andrew John Sr. and Jr., a chronology of recorded events that involved them, and a Seneca Nation leasing chronology.
It is important to note the limitations of this book as a myopic political analysis that does not include the social patterns of Seneca life and the good white neighbors the Senecas lived near, interacted with in everyday life, and sometimes intermarried with, and the good folks who helped Senecas in need, including missionaries.
