Tough fighters and skillful diplomats
Different Iroquoian groups first lived in what is now the north-eastern United States. They then formed the Iroquois League made up of six nations: Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca and Tuscarora. In the 17th and 18th century the league ranked among the most powerful in North America. The colonials were terrified of Iroquoian war tactics, but admired their diplomacy and statesmanship.
