Who are the Iroquois? These American Indians built their longhouses throughout the Eastern United States and Canada. Governed by the Great Law of Peace, the Iroquois have a long tradition of friendship among their Six Nations. They celebrate life through their sacred ceremonies, art, and even sports like lacrosse. In The Iroquois: A Proud People, author Ann Malaspina explores the life of the Iroquois, both yesterday and today, from their heroes and their distinctive art to their hope for future generations.
