Indigenous peoples of the Northeastern Woodlands include Native American tribes and First Nation bands residing in or originating from a cultural area encompassing the northeastern and Midwest United States and southeastern Canada. By around 1100, the distinct Iroquoian-speaking and Algonquian-speaking cultures had developed in what would become New York State and New England. In the 15th century, the five nations of the Iroquois League developed a powerful confederacy. The Iroquois confederacy, or Haudenosaunee, became the most powerful political grouping in the northeastern woodlands and still exists today.
