Excerpt from The Iroquois Eagle Dance: An Offshoot of the Calumet Dance
Ethnology among the Iroquois has a long genealogy, which I have recounted several times (fenton, 1940, pp. 160 - 164; 1949, pp. 233 234; 1951 a). Lewis H. Morgan, America's great ethnologist, pre ceded me... a century ago at Tonawanda, and I once had access to his journals and field notes at the Rush Rh ees Library of the University of Rochester. F. W. Waugh was one of the people for whom Sapir made field work possible at Grand River during the second decade of the century. Waugh's Iroquois Field Notes, in manuscript, was lent to me some years ago by the National Museum of Canada through Dr. Diamond Jenness. The originals are in Ottawa, but a duplicate set of Waugh's folklore collection is now at the American Philosophical Society Library. The Waugh papers contain several references to the Eagle Dance.
