History The Iroquois made an alliance with tribes that had similar cultures. The first tribes were the Mahawks, Onodaga, Cayugay, Oneida, and the Seneca. This is known as the Iroquois Confederacy.

Location The Iroquois Indians originally lived in the area that is now New York. Now they live in New York, Wisconsin, and southern Canada.

Way of Life (then) For men, one way to be self-respected was you had to reach personal glory in war. In place of dead relatives, they would adopt or enslave war captives. They lived in longhouses. They wore kilt-like and long skirts, hike shirts, vests, leggings, moccasins, and snowshoes. They used similar tools as other indian tribes. They grew squash, corn, and beans.
