Hi Maggie,

Great question!

 

I did some research and learned that the Iroquois were known to have held around six major festivals each year to celebrate various events throughout the agricultural calendar. These celebratory holidays all lasted for several days and included music, dancing, and food.

These festivals included the Midwinter Ceremony, a Maple Festival, the Corn Planting Festival, the Strawberry Festival, Green Corn Festival, and the Harvest Festival.

 

  Here is a link for some information on the Midwinter Ceremony:

Was this information helpful?
