Assignment #3- Haudenosaunee Symbols/Art (Group project w/Thomas Barreiro)

For this group assignment, my partner, Thomas and I chose to examine the symbols and art of the Haudenosaunee (Iroqouis) Confederacy. The Haudenosaunee are an American Indian confederacy consisting of the Seneca, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Mohawk, and later the Tuscarora tribes. Before european contact, the Haudenosaunee controlled territory from nothern pennsylvania to Toronto. The following pieces are both classic and contemporary Haudenosaunee images. These pieces draw on many  elements and principles of design. However the elements that seem to reoccur most often are emphasis, pattern, and unity.
