    The Iroquoian family comprises 11 languages:

    Southern Iroquoian

    1. Cherokee

    Northern Iroquoian - Tuscarora-Nottoway

    2. Tuscarora

    3. Nottoway

    Huronian

    4. Neutral

    5. Huron-Wyandot

    Five Nations and Susquehannock

    6. Seneca

    7. Cayuga

    8. Susquehannock

    9. Onondaga

    Mohawk-Oneida

    10. Oneida

    11. Mohawk

    Although frequently referred to as the Iroquois, the Nations refer to themselves collectively as Haudenosaunee (Akunęhsyę̀ni in Tuscarora).

    There were five.

    Seneca

    Onondago

    Oneida

    Mohawk

    The Tuscarora joined them later and then some moved on into Canada.
