The Kleinburg ossuary population is known to be a protohistoric Iroquois group, but little else has been discovered. The non-metric dental morphology was observed and compared to that of three contemporary Iroquois groups known in an archaeological context in an attempt to more precisely identify the Kleinburg population. Twenty-eight characters were used for comparisons. Two statistical methods were chosen, both giving estimates of overall divergence between samples. A modern white sample was included to test the validity of the method.
