This 350 word vocabulary was commissioned by Henry Schoolcraft and
filled by William Chew and Gilbert Rockwood in 1845, at the Tuscarora
Mission in New York State. This edition makes use of both published
versions in Schoolcraft's Report to the Secretary of State (1846) and
Notes on the Iroquois (1847). Also included is a 100 word vocabulary
of Tuscarora prepared by Nicholas and James Cassick of the War
Department, printed in Albert Gallatin's Synopsis of the Indian Tribes
