This paper examines Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) women in the context created by the challenges of colonization on the balance and maintenance of gender roles in traditional Haudenosaunee society. A distinctly female Haudenosaunee perspective provides a unique view of our history and gives voice to our resilience as Haudenosaunee women.
