INDIAN RESERVE CANADA
The one and only “Longouse of the Iroquois.” The longhouse was used by the forefathers of the Caughnawaga Indians, when they were not so numerous. They lived in the longhouse only, divided into six sections of the clans, namely the Turtle, the Bear, the Wolf, the Pipe of Peace, the Trock and the Heron
clan. During festivities, each must stay in their own section, as to clan fireplaces. They do not intermarry into the same clans.
Please see message about clans from M. McComber in the comment box below.
