Description: Granddaughter and daughter of Indian traders in the Elmira area, Converse became an ardent defender of Indian interests in the 19th Century, recognized in her adoption and election as an honorary chief by the Seneca Iroquois. Years of fascinating first-hand observations made by Converse were edited by Parker, who was the State Museums first full time curator of archeology and ethnology, himself of Seneca descent. This publication is still a major reference on Iroquois religion and a classic in the field.
