Home » Iroquois hunting and fishing grounds

The Iroquois people were skilled hunters and fishermen who relied on the abundant natural resources of the eastern woodlands of North America for their sustenance. They hunted a variety of animals such as deer, bear, and small game, and fished in rivers and lakes for fish such as trout, salmon, and sturgeon. These hunting and fishing grounds were not only a source of food but also held cultural significance for the Iroquois, who believed in the importance of respecting and honoring the natural world.
