The Iroquois Confederacy was a powerful alliance, or group, of Native American tribes in the s and s. The five original Iroquois tribes were the Cayuga, the Mohawk, the Oneida, the Onondaga, and the Seneca. The Tuscarora joined later. The Iroquois lived mainly in what is now New York state. Many Iroquois still live in New York. The women had a large role in social government and even chose the representatives that went to meet at the Great Council.

The Onondaga, keepers of the council fires and the wampum records, were between the Cayuga on the west and the Oneida on the east. The main Onondaga village served as the capital, or meeting place, of the federated council. Voting in the council was conducted by tribe, and a unanimous decision was necessary to wage war. Iroquoian Language Family. The Iroquoian language family is one of the important language families of North America. It is named after the Iroquois Confederacy that included the Mohawk, Onondaga, Oneida,Cayuga, and Seneca tribes. The Confederacy, founded in the latter part of the 16th century in what is now central New York State, came to be known as the League of Five Nations.

Introduction The highest achievement in Iroquois ceramic art, according to William Beauchamp (), was the creation of distinctive human-like depictions on pottery. Such imagery was especially character- istic of the central Iroquois, the Onondagas and Oneidas, from late in the pre-European era until well into the seventeenth century.

Led by Trigger, a group of researchers in southeast Ontario were among the first to apply archaeometric techniques to the study of Isoquoian ceramics in an attempt to identify transported pottery, not by style, but by ceramic charac- terizations (). They also explored the correlation between exotic styles and ceramic composition.

Approach, tracing documented Iroquoian tribes back through the prehistoric remains left by their ancestors. While MacNeish () implied local development from Middle Woodland antecedents, he did not incorporate any Point Peninsula ceramic data in his study.

Northern Iroquoian Ethnic Evolution: A Social Network Analysis   This study examines cultural sources of variation in ceramic compositional patterning in two pottery-making villages of the highland Philippines.

The Iroquois (as they were called by the French denoted their infamous reputation as “snake-like” savages) declared and conducted war as any European country would, but their organized violence served functions in their cul-ture that were unfamiliar to.

Pottery represents the principal marker identifying an archaeological site as St. Lawrence Iroquoian. The ceramic technology used by Iroquoian women belonged to an ancestral tradition originating in the distant past.

The fruit of a long evolution, pottery production appeared in the northeast of North America over two millennia ago.

Ethnicity is one kind of social relationship that archaeologists explore. The evolution of the northern Iroquoian ethnic landscape in New York, southern Ontario, and the St.

Lawrence Valley has been of long-standing interest to archaeologists. Since MacNeish’s () pottery typology study, the predominant model for this evolution has been cladistic.

The Iroquois were an important confederacy of indigenous peoples of the Iroquoian language family and of the Eastern Woodlands culture area. It was founded in the 16th century in what is now central New York State. The original confederacy consisted of five tribes—the Mohawk, Onondaga, Cayuga, Oneida, and Seneca—and was known as the Five Nations.

Cayuga, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, and Seneca were the names of the five original nations. Sometime between andthe Tuscaroras, an Iroquoian tribe of North Carolina, which had moved to New York, were formally admitted to the confederacy.

The name Iroquois was given to them like many other tribes, by their enemies. Just as today’s federal, state, and local governments interact, the levels of Iroquoian politics interacted. The Sachems worked together as the Council of the League, the Sachems governing their own tribes.

The chiefs worked with them to ensure effective decision-making. The result was a. Otis has done an excellent job of crafting this narrative.

The members of the Iroquois Confederacy possessed an intricate belief in a Great Spirit and the spiritual forces within nature. Ritual and its proper performance played an integral role in peace, subsistence, and protection from natural catastrophe. iv ©TheNewYorkStateEducationDepartment PublishedintheUnitedStatesofAmerica ISSN ISBN Frontcover:Flat,blacknineteenth-centurybeadedpurse.

Most of these movements, although the subject of well-supported tradition, belong to prehistoric times. The Indian Tribe in North America that I chose to report on is the Iroquois. The Iroquois are one of the most important tribes because they were part of the Revolutionary war and sided with the British.

I chose to research the Iroquois because they seem very interesting and they were a very advanced tribe.

This suggests that while the different Iroquoian tribes had the same historical and cultural origin, they came apart over a long enough time that their languages became different.
