The False Face of the Iroquois is the culminating achievement of William N. Fenton's lifetime study of Iroquois culture and history as manifested in the Society of Faces. The Society is one of the central features of Iroquois life, and the masks made and worn by society members in their various rites are the outward expressions of religious beliefs, representing a long tradition of relationships between human beings and supernaturals.
