The term Iroquois refers to a group of Indigenous Peoples who inhabited the Eastern Woodlands of North America (Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River Valley areas). made up of Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawk), Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, Tuscarora, Huron, Susquehannock (Northern Iroquoian), and Cherokee (Southern Iroquoian) peoples. The Iroquois share a common ancestry, social organization, spiritual beliefs, and dialects deriving from a proto-Iroquoian language.

The term Iroquois is often synonymous with the Haudenosaunee or "Iroquois Confederacy", a political league made up of the Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawk), Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, and later the Tuscarora.
