Iroquois Confederacy By: Rheana Khabra Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca. In the early 1700's the Tuscarora nation joined the League. Now there are six Iroquois nations. What was Iroquois Confederacy made up of? Haudenosaunee and Iroquois Haudenosaunee means "People of the longhouse." They were also known as The Iroquois. The Iroquois Confederacy is a United Nation made up of five nations called the... The role of women in the Iroquois Confederacy?
The Clan Mothers would listen to their clans and gather together their clan's requests. They would then present those requests to the chiefs for permission. If the chiefs do not like their wishes they bring it back to the clan mothers who have the final say and if they don't make up their minds then the chief gets to make his decision. The role of women in the Iroquois Confederacy was owning land, raising children and having the final say. A women's husband would come and live with her and her family, in their longhouse. They raised crops such as beans, squash and corn. The crops were known as "Three sisters." Longhouses Longhouses are long and narrow bark covered houses that the Haudenosuanee (People of the Longhouse), lived in. They were 180 to 220 feet long. These houses included one large extended family. All the women and children living in a longhouse were from the same clan. Longhouses had two doors and no windows. There was one door on each side of the longhouse. Many houses in one area made a village. The village would provide protection. The Haudenosaunee planted gardens all around their houses. In their gardens they planted foods like corn, beans, and squash. They also hunted game and birds, they fished, and they collected wild plants such as berries, seeds, and nuts. How were decisions made in the Iroquois Confederacy? Each nation had a different amount of chiefs. They had all had the same level of authority. Only men were members of the grand council, it was the women who could take away the chiefs title. People in each nation belonged to many different clans, their loyalty was split between their clan and their nation. The balance of loyalty worked to keep control of the confederacy. Wampum The wampum belt was made out of different colored beads, shells and material such as white, black, purple and red. Each colour showed importance. They used wampum to show history. Tree of peace In the middle of the wampum belt there is a picture of a tree, it is called The Tree of Peace. It is a symbol of peace. It is an important symbol because it would record the history between the Iroquois and the Westerns. Special Thanks To..... www.google.ca/ THE END THE END THANKS FOR BEING A GOOD AUDIENCE!
