The Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Dutch Colonists in New Netherland: Conflict, Collaboration, Communication and the Role of Women (1609-1674) 

The subject of my doctoral dissertation pertains to certain aspects of the colony of New Netherland. This territory was explored in 1609 by Henry Hudson, an Englishman working for the Dutch East India Company. This region was of economic interest to the Dutch Republic, as Dutch settlers traded beaver pelts with local Native American tribes. In my dissertation, I focus on the relationship between the Dutch colonists and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, commonly called the Iroquois, who inhabited parts of the land in which the Dutch had settled.
