The Iroquois, or Haudenosaunee, (“People of the Longhouse”), are a northeast Native American confederacy in North America. They were known during the colonial years to the French as the Iroquois League, and later as the Iroquois Confederacy, and to other European immigrants as the Five Nations, comprising the Mohawk, Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, and Seneca. After 1722, they accepted the Tuscarora people from the Southeast into their confederacy, and became known as the Six Nations.
The International Coalition of Sites of Conscience is set to host two events on Haudenosaunee culture and women and how they relate to museum and memorial sites, on December 12th and 13th, at the Seneca Art & Culture Center in Victor.
