The Mohawks, who were commonly referred to as Iroquois by the French, formed a League of Five Nations of the people of the Longhouse several generations prior to the arrival of Europeans on the North American continent. The Oneidas,...The Onondagas, ... the Cayugas, ... the Senecas, ... The Five nations refer to themselves as the "Hotinonsonni" which translated into English means "The People of the Longhouse". The French used the term "Iroquois Confederacy" while the British used the term "Six Nations Confederacy" when referring to the Hotinonsonni. In the 1700's, the Tuscaroras, "the People of the Shirt", were accepted by the Hotinonsonni as the sixth nation.

Plusieurs générations avant l'arrivée des Européens sur le continent nord-américain, les Mohawks, que les Français appelèrent subséquemment Iroquois, s'étaient regroupés en une ligue des Cinq-Nations du peuple de la maison longue. Les Oneidas [...], les Onondagas, [...], les Cayugas,[...] les Sénécas [...] En parlant d'elles-mêmes, les Cinq-Nations employaient Hotinonsonni, qui veut dire «peuple de la Maison longue». Les Français, eux, parlaient de la Confédération iroquoise alors que les Britanniques préféraient l'expression Confédération des Six-Nations [...] Au XVIIIe siècle, les Tuscaroras, ou peuple de la Tunique, furent acceptés parmi les Hotinonsonnis et devinrent la sixième nation. Les Hotinonsonnis s'allièrent pour former une Ligue. Ils se comparaient à une longue cabane d'écorce contenant cinq feux et où tous ne formeraient qu'une seule famille.
