Iroquois of the Northeast Woodlands

The Iroquois lived in the eastern woodland and they lived in longhouses which hold several families and had no windows and only a door on each side with small holes in the roof to let in air . The Iroquois were multiple groups that formed a tribe .  The Iroquois formed a confederation in which they didn’t fight in between their groups and they would meet once a year to make big decisions . The women picked the men to represent their little group . The Iroquois were among the biggest tribes in the area . They still kept the same traditions among their groups even with the confederation they didn’t care what the others belied but still they respected each other .
