Transcript of The Iroquois

The Iroquois The second was called the longhouse:
They were long and rectangular, they made them by sewing pieces of bark together and they used this ¨bark blanket¨ to cover a frame of young trees. Inside there was a long hallway with rooms on both sides. In these rooms there were some sleeping platforms, beside the sleeping
platforms there were some large shelves for storage. There were 2 types of houses, the first was called the wigwam:
To make them they had to bend young trees to form a round shaped house. Then they were putting pieces of bark on top to protect it from the weather. After, grass was placed on top of it. They left a hole on the roof so when they would make a fire the smoke would not stay in the house. The Houses The houses The Language Iroquoian: Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, Seneca, Tuscarora
