The Iroquois culture is and can be summed up as very complex. They live off the foods that are made from family own and land that has been maintain or passed down through there line of family. They are mainly horticulture way of living and this is an established way of living. This is the essential way of farming the land. Everything you use will be basic and not advance. Everything that they use is made at home and own by the family or women. When it comes to family and how they live they all divide one land and harvest together. They do have to move around a lot so that the resources that they use can replenish themselves. This is only for the larger group of Iroquois but when you have a smaller family they will just move their crops and not the family or village. The Iroquois culture is a matrilineal social structure. They are not valued on what they can bring into their family but they share everything evenly. Everyone has a role in helping the family and group continue to exist. They do consider women very imperative at home. The Iroquois have the same viewpoint as most. There political consisted of somewhat complicated world. They had head people that made choices for them like if they would go to war, or who to marry. They was called the matron and the chiefs and they each had different roles in the village decision and finale say of what happen in their village. This is all worked into the culture and kinship and how they live and sirvive in the world.
There kinship allowed for all people to have a place. When families married they did not move out and give up homes. Women never left the comfort of their home and when they married the husband moved in with the wife and family. So you can have seven families living in one house and they would all have like their own room or closed sector to live in. They all had close knit with each other. If they did divorce they stilled lived...
