Scope and Contents:
Includes brief introduction and short histories of the Canadian and New York Cayugas until 1807-09. The main text is a detailed account, based mainly on primary legal and governmental sources, of the post-1870 westward migrations, settlements and subsequent factionalism of successive Cayuga groups; their long lasting, close ties with the Seneca; and the formulation and persistence since 1807 of two separate political entities, New York Cayugas and Western Cayugas, the latter recognized since 1937 as part of the "Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma". Also included is a bibliography and a partial list of treaties, agreements, etc., used for identifying Cayuga Indians.
