Iroquois Women


Great post over at History of American Women.  Very detailed.  Maggiemac, the author,  should podcast.  Here is a little snip of the article.  Visit History of American Women to read the rest.

The Iroquois were one of the most powerful Indian races, controlling land all the way down the eastern seaboard of North America and several hundred miles inland. A woman’s place in Iroquois culture was very different from that in European cultures. Iroquois women enjoyed social equality and respect that was not shared by colonial American women.
