It's humbling to see real science in action. What we know about pre-contact Onondagas comes from people digging in the dirt and finding the most tenuous of clues: tiny scraps of European copper show up in NYS in the second half of the 16th century, decades, generations before direct contact.

But the aboriginal population WAS able to make a subsistence living here, even in this climate: except contact with the Europeans instantly made them crave modern luxuries - like scraps of metal. Sobering.

"Within a generation of the original contact, Indian civilization was on the road to extinction." (p2)
