Where did the Iroquoian Native Americans live?

The northeastern Iroquoian tribes lived in what is now central and western New York State and southern Ontario, Canada.

These lands were sandwiched between the territory of the Great Lakes Algonquian tribes and that of the Algonquian tribes along the northern Atlantic Coast.

Before contact with whites, there were about 12 Iroquoian tribes in the Northeast. These peoples included the Huron, the Neutral, the Erie, and the tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy.
