Who depended of forest and lived in longhouses and wigwams?
Your question is asking about two different Native American tribes. The northeastern tribes lived in long houses and the idea of "wigwams " comes from the Americanization of the plains tribes teepee. The plains tribes followed the buffalo herds and had summer and winter camps and needed a shelter they could break down.
