The Iroquois Longhouse

22 March to 3 November 2013

Accompanying the exhibition On the Trails of the Iroquois, visitors will encounter a recreation of an Iroquois longhouse on the museum's square. Their traditional dwelling also stands as a symbol for the confederacy of the Iroquois nations, who call themselves Haudenosaunee, "People of the Longhouse".

The iroquois garden landscape

The longhouse in Bonn is surrounded by a garden landscape. Next to a White Pine, the Tree of Peace, under which the proverbial hatchet was buried at the time of the founding of the Iroquois Confederacy, a variety of medicinal plants and herbs of the North American woodlands are grown. A vibrant educational program will highlight the traditional ways of life of the Iroquois.
