History of the Iroquois Indians
Iroquois Longhouse - Established in either 1142 or 1451, the Five Nations Iroquois confederacy consisted of the Mohawks, the Oneidas, the Onondagas, the Cayugas, and the Senecas. When the Tuscaroras joined in 1712 the union adapted the name Haudenosaunee, which translates to mean “six separate Indian nations”. In treaties and other colonial documents they were known as the “Six Nations.”
