The Iroquois were thankful that they were given animals to live with and hunt!

To show their thanks and respect they tried to use every part of the animal.

These are some of the different ways that the Iroquois used the animals they hunted.

  • meat for food
  • fur for blankets
  • fur for clothing
  • feathers for decoration
  • bones for tools
  • animals pelts as disguises
  • organs to soften hides and make leather
  • bones and skins for musical instruments
  • shells for bowls
  • whelk for wumpum beads
