What were women treated like in the tribes of the Indians? Were they given more rights than American women of the time? In , the Rev. Most scholars agree that Native American women at the time of contact with Europeans had more authority and autonomy than did European women. However, most cultures shared certain characteristics that promoted gender equality. Kinship, extended family, and clan bound people together within a system of mutual obligation and respect. Lineage was central to determining status and responsibilities, consent held communities together, and concepts of reciprocity extended to gender roles and divisions of authority. Men were generally responsible for hunting, warfare, and interacting with outsiders, therefore they had more visible, public roles. Women, on the other hand, managed the internal operations of the community. In many North American societies, clan membership and material goods descended through women.

Of all the North American Indian tribes, the seventeenth-century Iroquois are the most renowned for their cruelty towards other human beings. Scholars know that they ruthlessly tortured war prisoners and that they were cannibals; in the Algonquin tongue the word Mohawk actually means "flesh-eater. Ironically, the Iroquois were not alone in these practices. There is ample evidence that most, if not all, of the Indians of northeastern America engaged in cannibalism and torture—there is documentation of the Huron, Neutral, and Algonquin tribes each exhibiting the same behavior. This paper will examine these atrocities, search through several possible explanations, and ultimately reveal that the practices of cannibalism and torture in the Iroquois were actually related. First a bit of background is necessary to understand the state of the Native American people before colonial exploration and settlement. The Iroquois were the dominant force in northeastern America until the Europeans came to the New World. The legendary Hiawatha joined these five tribes together into a single powerful confederation after fierce blood feuds threatened to destroy all five nations. This Iroquois League now began to dominate the rest of the Native American tribes in the northeast. Most of what scholars know about the Iroquois comes from European accounts.
Native Nations engaged in treaty negotiations to preserve and protect their people and the sacred landscapes that were their homelands. When Native leaders spoke and listened in the treaty councils they believed that all the words exchanged were true and that promises given would be honored forever. As for the Natives in New England, they claim no Land, nor do they have any settled places to live, nor any tame Cattle to improve the Land, and so they have only a Naturall Right, not a legal right, to those Countries; so if we leave them sufficient land for their use, we may lawfully take the rest, since there is more than enough for them and us. The United States, then, have clearly accepted that great and broad legal power [the act of "Discovery"] by which its civilized inhabitants now control this country. They have and they exercise the rights to the land by which [the country] was acquired. They claim, as all others have claimed, that discovery gave them an exclusive legal authority to end, either by purchase or by war, the Indians' right to occupy the land; and [discovery] gave them also a right to whatever degree of government authority the circumstances of the people would allow them to exercise.
