Great Abundance 

Longhouse 

     For the Oneida people, the time of great abundance was a time of great peace amongst the people. The people had everything they needed and wanted. They had more than enough food and clean water. The people in the village were living together as a perfect society. The people were living in good health with no out-side diseases or viruses. The time of abundance was a peaceful time for the Oneida people. They didn’t have to worry about any thing going wrong. All of their crops were growing good and on time. Their hunting parties were bringing home meat that would last through the cold winters. The animal skins were providing adequate clothing and blankets for the people. The seasons weren’t too cold or too hot. The time of abundance was a time of a utopia.
