Q:

Where did the Mohawk Indians live?

A:

The Mohawk Indian tribe was a group of Iroquois-speaking Indians that lived in the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York. The region of the Mohawk Indians extended from Quebec and Ontario all the way to Vermont.

In 2014, the majority of all Mohawk Indians live in areas around Lake Ontario in Canada and around the lower portion of New York. The Mohawk tribe is also sometimes referred to as the "Mohicans." Each community has two chiefs, who act as the tribal government. Hiawatha was a Mohawk chief and also a notable Mohawk Indian who was responsible for the founding of the Iroquois confederacy.

    Why did the Plains Indians live in tepees?

    A:

    Plains Indians lived in tepees -- also known as teepees, tepes and tipis -- because these dwellings were easy to move as the Native Americans followed herds of migrating buffalo, or bison. Because they depended upon the animals for food and goods, the Plains Indians led nomadic lives in order to maintain a constant supply of bison. Tepees were relatively simple to transport and set up.
