Transcript of The Iroquois Tribe

The Iroquois Tribe
By Justin Hodrick
The Iroquois tribe lived in the great plains, due to their location they ate many crops such as corn or wheat; men also hunted elk and fished the streams and rivers.
The Iroquois Tribe played many songs with instruments such as the flute, as played in this video below
A Pow-wow is a friendly gathering usually with fellow tribe members, where people of their tribe form a circle performing movements representing vital animals as well as Regalias. The Pow-Wows that the Iroquois tribes performed represent the continuation of life with a circle shape.
Today in 2013 there are approximately 115,000 Native American Iroquois tribal members.

They like to play the sport Lacrosse which is still played today;
however there were no rules in Lacrosse back then other than no killing.
Sticks are much more enhanced today than they were originally.
The Women of the Iroquois tribes did not play Lacrosse; it was a male only activity.
When fighting with other tribes the Iroquois would use bows, shields, clubs, and spears
the Iroquois inhabited many parts of Rhode Island, my home state! :)

The Iroquois tribes believed dream catchers would catch bad dreams, as well as bad luck. You would hang it above your bed for the good dreams to pass through.
The Iroquois tribes inhabited northern New York state, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and the border of Canada, as well as Rhode island
the Iroquois tribes were ferocious warriors
who would take over whatever they want.
They also traded with other tribes for food, crops, and animal skins.

The Mohawk Tribe
Mohawk? Faux hawk? I don't know but this tribe really piques my interest, single Women would have two braids in their hair if not married, but if married they will have only one braid. The Men of the Mohawk tribe will shave all their head except for a line down the middle!
This is an Elk that they would hunt.
