Ancestral Lands

Map of Estimated ancestral lands of the Haudenosaunee: 

The traditional homelands are made up of  wooded forests of pine, oak, maple, ash, and etc. The land is in places is hilly with other areas having valleys.  There are a lot of streams, ponds, and rivers.   There is a lot of rain. The climate ranges from severe winters to very warm summers. The traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee (the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca) spread across what today is northern New York, southern parts of Canada (Quebec and Ontario), to northern portions of Pennsylvanian and Ohio and eastern ward into New Hampshire. 

Today, since the early 1800's, we can be found living on smaller portions of our ancestral lands in northern New York, southern Ontario and Quebec, there is an Indian reservation is Wisconsin and a Seneca/Cayuga reservation in Oklahoma.   Below is a map showing current Mohawk locations.
