Haudenosaunee means “people who build a house” and refers to a confederation or alliance among six Native American nations which are more commonly known as the Iroquois Confederacy. These nations consist of the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca and Tuscarora. As part of their learning, the students created a miniature Indian village that included longhouses and the placement of crops.
