Deer Hides and Tribal Confederacies: An Appraisal of Gramly's Hypothesis

  • Gary S. Webster (a1)

Two of Gramly's (1977) assumptions, aboriginal deer density and a hunting orientation among the Huron aimed at procuring deerskins, are evaluated using ethnohistorical data. An alternate hypothesis concerning the relationship between a Huron tribal confederacy and deer hunting is then offered.
