Life in a Longhouse Village

Life in a Longhouse Village In-Person

This artifact-filled presentation will present a broad overview of the history, culture & traditions of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) People. The lively and engaging program will focus on Native American lifestyles prior to 1492 when Haudenosaunee lived in longhouses and survived using the Natural Resources of their environment. Topics such as the founding of the Confederacy, matrilineal clans, hunting, cooking, traditional clothing, wampum & tools used within a longhouse community will be discussed and shown. Connecting this history to modern traditions among the Haudenosaunee will be discussed also. This presentation is ideal for historical societies, libraries, parks, and nature centers who want to learn more about the original inhabitants of New York.
