Example 

Life in the Eastern woodlands 

Iroquois Indians lived in longhouses that had room for several families. They were made of poles and covered with bark.  They made  beautiful bead work  that was called "wampum"  These were given away as gifts and used in religious ceremonies. The women were the head of the tribe, Women did most of the farming, the major part of the everyday food supply.  Even though the men were the ones who were the head of the village, the Head Woman had to approve the decisions, and if she didn't like the decisions, she could remove him and appoint a different village chief.
