Papers on Historical Algonquian and Iroquois Topics: Second Edition is a book that compiles the research results by David A. Ezzo and Michael H. Moskowitz on several aspects of Algonquin tribal peoples such as the Delaware, the Wabanaki, the Montagnais, and the Shawnee, as well as the Iroquois. The authors demonstrate the society, customs, and interactions of the Native American peoples throughout several accounts, registers, and passages from as early as the 16th century.
David A. Ezzo has been involved with the study of Native American Indian history and culture for over thirty -five years. His interest in the subject matter first began when he earned his Indian Lore badge from Mr. Ronald P. Koch when he was 15 years old.
His interest in the topic continued when he served as an Indian Lore counselor at Camp Turner for four summers in 1979, 1980, 1981, and 1983.
David began his academic study of Native Americans when he earned a BA degree in Anthropology from SUNY Fredonia in 1985. While at Fredonia he wrote two published articles and co-wrote a third article with one of his professors, Dr. Alvin H. Morrison. This article was presented at the 16th Algonquian Conference and was published one year later in 1986.
