Scholars typically have tried to place the dwellings used by eighteenth-century Iroquois peoples into two categories: either Iroquois longhouse or European-style house. It was previously argued that a third formal category—the intercultural/creolized house—is needed to adequately describe the full range of eighteenth-century Iroquois residential forms. To aid in the classification of documentary and archaeological evidence, this chapter outlines the most prominent characteristics of each type.

Keywords: Iroquois houses; longhouse; European-style house; intercultural house; creolized house
