     Writing of the Iroquois nation, Smith has argued that through the chiefs’ council, tribal chiefs traditionally maintained complete control over the political affairs of both the Iroquois tribal league and the individual tribes belonging to the league, whereas the sole jurisdiction over religious affairs resided with the shamans. According to Smith, this division was maintained until the late nineteenth century, when the dissolution of the chiefs’ council and the consequent diminishment of the chiefs’ political power fostered their increasing involvement in religious affairs.
  
    However, Smith fails to recognize that this division of power between the tribal chiefs and shamans was not actually rooted in Iroquois tradition; rather, it resulted from the Iroquois’ resettlement on reservations early in the nineteenth century. Prior to resettlement, the chiefs’ council controlled only the broad policy of the tribal league; individual tribes had institutions—most important, the longhouse—to govern their own affairs. In the longhouse, the tribe’s chief influenced both political and religious affairs.

  (C) The political influence of the Iroquois shamans was diminished.
  (D) Individual tribes coalesced into the Iroquois tribal league.
  (E) The longhouse because a political rather than a religious institution.
  
27. Which of the following best expresses an opinion presented by the author of the passage?
  (A) Smith has overstated the importance of the political role played by Iroquois tribal chiefs in the nineteenth century.
  (B) Smith has overlooked the fact that the Iroquois rarely allowed their shamans to exercise political authority.
