Alyssa Mt. Pleasant is an assistant professor of Native American studies at the University at Buffalo. She works in the field of American Indian history, focusing on Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) history during the colonial period and early American republic. Her most recent publication, a chapter titled “Independence for Whom? Expansion and Conflict in the Northeast and Northwest,” argued that Haudenosaunee responses to US expansionism are best understood through the lens of indigenous philosophies of governance, diplomacy, and intercultural relations that are embedded in their Great Law of Peace.
