American Indian Studies. Mt. Pleasant's research focuses on the experiences of American

Indians of northeastern North America. Her dissertation, "After the Whirlwind: Maintaining a

Haudenosaunee Place at Buffalo Creek, 1780-1825," examines the social, political, and

religious dynamics of the Buffalo Creek Reservation in western New York State. In 2007, Penn

State Press will publish her essay "Debating Missionary Presence at Buffalo Creek:

Haudenosaunee perspectives on the intersection of land cessions, government relations, and

Christianity" in Ethnographies and Exchanges: Native Americans, Moravians and Catholics in

Early North America.
