The 30 page publication
Flights of Fancy: An Introduction to Iroquois Beadwork
contains a description of the various types of Iroquois beadwork.
Iroquois beadwork represents two major traditions:
- Niagara, made around Niagara Falls by beadworkers from all the Six Nations, but primarily the Tuscarora.
- Mohawk, made near Montreal by Mohawk beadworkers.
Although the Tuscarora are more widely recognized for their beadwork, Mohawk beadwork, in fact, outnumbers Niagara beadwork 10:1.
Because the book is no longer in print the following excerpts are available here.
