Abstract

This article argues that slavery was practiced by Northern Iroquoians in the context of what has been previously and exclusively described as an adoption complex. This conclusion is reached after applying Orlando Patterson's (1982) model of slavery to the ethnohistorical and ethnological data on Northern Iroquoians. The constituent elements of slavery, rituals of integration and incorporation, and the conditions of slavery are also discussed and documented.
