A confederation of tribes, at first five, the Cayuga,
Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, and Seneca, to which the Tuscarora was added
after 1726, as well as the remnants of many other tribes. They were
known to the English colonists as the Five Nations, and later as the Six
Nations. They called themselves Ongwanonsionni, "we are of the
extended lodge." When they first came into contact with Europeans, they
occupied the country between Lake Champlain and the Genesee River, and
this remained their home territory, but they ranged far and wide,
carrying their conquering raids eastwards to the Kennebec, westwards to
Lake Michigan, north to the Hudson Bay watershed, and south to the
Tennessee. They numbered about 16,000 in 1677, and after dropping to
10,000 in the next century, they returned to their original strength at
the opening of the twentieth century. About two-thirds are on
reservations in Canada; the remainder in New York. =Index=: (Count Frontenac era)
