The Iroquois were skilled hunters and caught a variety of woodland animals found in northern latitudes such as bear, deer, beaver, rabbits, turtles, and game birds such as turkeys, ducks, and grouse. They farmed for the Three Sisters: corn, beans, and squash and harvested significant amounts of fish from the nearby rivers and lakes. The Three Sisters were often mixed together to make a meal called succotash. The Iroquois also collected berries and other fruits and learned how to make syrup from the abundance of maple trees.
