Sedentary means to live in one place, to grow one’s own food, and to build more permanent houses and even villages.

“As was typical of [Northeastern Indigenous peoples] before colonization, the Iroquois were semisedentary agriculturists who palisaded their villages in time of need. Each village typically comprised several hundred persons. Iroquois people dwelt in large longhouses made of saplings and sheathed with elm bark, each housing many families. The longhouse family was the basic unit of traditional Iroquois society, which used a nested form of social organization: households (each representing a lineage) were divisions of clans, several clans constituted each moiety, and the two moieties combined to create a tribe.”

Sédentaire signifie vivre au même endroit, cultiver sa propre nourriture et construire des maisons plus permanentes et même des villages.

“Comme c’était le cas pour les [autochtones] du Nord-Est avant la colonisation, les Iroquois étaient des agriculteurs semi-sédentaires qui palissadaient leurs villages en cas de besoin. Chaque village comprenait généralement plusieurs centaines de personnes. Les Iroquois habitaient dans de grandes maisons longues faites de jeunes arbres et recouvertes d’écorce d’orme, chacune abritant de nombreuses familles. La famille de la maison longue était l’unité de base de la société traditionnelle iroquoise, qui utilisait une forme d’organisation sociale imbriquée : les ménages (chacun représentant une lignée) étaient des divisions de clans, plusieurs clans constituaient chaque fraction, et les deux fractions se combinaient pour créer une tribu”.
