Iroquois war [1642-1653]



The term Iroquois was used to describe five Native American peoples living in vast forests in the area southeast of Lake Ontario (in what is now New York State), south of the Canadian border - the Seneks, Cayugs, Oneids, Onondags and Mohawks. They were mostly settled farmers and hunters. By about the middle of the 15th century, five tribes had fought hard among themselves, and since the satisfaction of the death of a member of the tribe could only be satisfied by the death of the member of the tribe who caused it, the fighting was essentially endless.

Iroquois War 1642 - 1653

A total of five Dutch-armed nations sought to divert the northern and central fur trade, managed by Huron and Algonquina for their own purposes, with the Iroquois acting as a mediator.
