What did they wear?

The Iroquois Indians made clothes from soft deerskin. The women and men wore leggings, shirts, and moccasins.

The women wore a skirt or a dress that covered most of their leggings.

In the winter, the men added a smock that went down to their knees for warmth.

They decorated their clothes with dyed porcupine quills.

The women wore their hair long. Warriors wore their hair in a "mohawk" - a wide stripe of hair left down the middle of their head.

Men removed all body hair by scraping it off.

Both men and women decorated their bodies with tattoos.
