The Cayuga are part of the Iroquois Confederacy. The Cayuga lived in longhouses by the Finger Lakes in New York. The people lived in groups called clans. They planted beans, squash and maize. The Cayuga were good hunters. The women of the clans wove and sewed clothing for their families.

The Cayuga’s begin a relation with the Europeans through fur trading. Eventually the relationship between the Europeans and the Cayuga Indians ended, after the Europeans drove the Cayuga off their land.
