What's For Dinner?
The Iroquois Longhouse Family
We started the week by examining a NY state map and identifying the states, country and waterways that bordered the state. Then, we took our map and labeled where each of the 5 Iroquois tribes were located within NY state. We also talked about the very important job that each had within the Confederacy. Please ask your child why the 5 tribes came together as one!
