During the long harsh winters in Western New York, the Seneca people nestled in their bark longhouses to repair clothing, make tools and prepare for the spring. Despite the winter weather, Seneca people remained active throughout the season. Many of the winter activities that traditionally occupied them outdoors are still in practice today.
