Description: A reading and translation of the Onondaga text of The Great Law as given in 1912 by Chief John A. Gibson and transcribed by Alexander Goldenweiser. The tapes alternate between two types: the re-reading of short segments of the text by William Fenton, which are then repeated in correct pronunciation by the native consultants; the replaying in short sections of these first tapes with translations and English glosses provided by the consultants. Howard Skye is the consultant on tapes 1-23, with his nephew James Skye taking over on tapes 24-31. Includes occasional additional commentary in English. Some of this material may be restricted due to cultural sensitivity or privacy concerns.
