We The People Called Quinnipiac


ACQTC and the QTC Press are proud to offer a scholarly, yet easy to read, history of the Quinnipiac people from the age of glaciers and mammoths to today. Written by our Grand Sachem Iron Thunderhorse, this work documents the truth and sets the record straight about the Quinnipiac. In addition to over 80 pages of text, this ebook includes more than 60 pages of maps, diagrams, illustrations, and photographs.

Information about the history, lore, and language of the Quinnipiac Nation (known as the ‘Quiripey’), the dominant nation in the 1500s of Quinnehtukqut, has been sporadic and written by outsiders unfamiliar with the Algonquian language and culture. All these works, written a century or more ago, are plagued with errors, misconceptions, prejudices and stereotypes, leaving the modern reader with little source for finding answers about the Quinnipiac.

Iron Thunderhorse has written hundreds of articles and newspaper columns over the past twenty-two years, including a 100 column series on Quinnipiac language, lore, and history for The Branford Review. Iron was recently nominated by several New England scholars for the American Medal of Honor for his unparalleled lifelong work and research. Still, his style is readable and has a multidisciplinary presentation that is rarely equaled.

The ebook is published in PDF format on CD-ROM, and comes in a space-saving thin jewel case. The cost of the CD is $30 (shipping and handling included).

Dawnland Traditions coverDawnland Traditions is a masterful collection of Traditions compiled, written, and illustrated by Iron Thunderhorse and his wife Ruth Mahweeyeuh Thunderhorse.

Along with We The People Called Quinnipiac (The History of our Nation) and The Complete Language Guide (of the Wampano Quiripi RDialect) this new handbook is the third publication of the ACQTC-QTC PRESS Trilogy of Literary Works that preserves the history, language, lore and religion of the Long Water Land People who have inhabited the Dawnland for 12,000 years.
