Iroquois - The Six Nations
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     When you think of the Native Americans of the East, what comes to mind? Do you think of longhouses and wigwams, hunters with bows and arrows, or blood-curdling war cries? If you lived among the Iroquois, you would know that politics was one of the most important parts of their culture. Surprised? Many people are.
2     For their daily lives, Iroquois were like other natives. They hunted their meat and grew several kinds of corn for food. Hides were saved from their kills to make clothing, while bones became tools.
3     The Iroquois lived in longhouses rather than wigwams. The name Iroquois was given to them, and it stuck. The name they called themselves was Haudenosaunee. It meant "people building a longhouse."
