The earliest known smallpox epidemic was introduced by the Spanish in 1524 and, carried along Indian trade routes, reached the Haudenosaunee by 1535, spreading as far as the Senecas at the western end of the Confederacy (Dobyns 1983:313–317, 326 fn. 6). Smallpox was followed by other devastating epidemics during the 1500s: typhoid, measles, bubonic plague (the black death), influenza, measles, and syphilis (Ramenofsky 1987; Thornton 1987; Verano and Ubelaker 1992). 19 Had the most virulent form of syphilis existed prior to the arrival of the Europeans, it is unlikely that the Haudenosaunee would have had the sexual freedom that was recorded by the Europeans.
