Where do the Iroquis live?
Most Iroquois live in New York, while some moved to Wisconsin and Ontario, Canada. In Canada they live near Lake Ontario. The Iroquois that stayed in New York lived near the St. Lawrence River. Like the tribe Algonquians, the Iroquois lived in villages made up of many longhouses.

The Albany Plan, proposed by Benjamin Franklin, was based off of the Iroquis Confederacy and basically wanted to create a united front for the colonies to present.
