Oneida Longhouse Traditions
The Oneida longhouse is the traditional building in which the Oneida lived. One of the several members of the Iroquois Confederacy, the Oneida lived the area that is now New York state. They built longhouses large enough to house extended family groups of up to 60 people. Longhouses were the center of the Oneida life, providing space for ceremony and education as well as social gatherings. Longhouses use tamarack wood and bark for construction because of the strength of the tamarack.
