Iroquois Women"Iroquois Women were the keepers of culture. They were responsible for defining the political, social, spiritual and economic norms of the tribe. Women also nominated men for their leadership positions and made sure they fulfilled their responsibilities. Women were also allowed to gamble, belong to Medicine Societies (spiritual associations) and they participated in political ceremonies."
