Q: Do you have any information on the Haudenosaunee tribe. Is there a website I can access for my project. I am a 4th grader.

A: The Haudenosaunee are not a tribe, they are a confederacy of tribes. They are more commonly known as the Iroquois Confederacy. The Haudenosaunee or Iroquois tribes originally included the Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Onondaga, and Cayuga tribes. Later the Tuscarora tribe joined the Iroquois Confederacy, and today they are known as the Six Nations.

You can learn about the Iroquois at sites like these:
