The Iroquois traded excess corn and tobacco with the tribes to the north and the wampum tribes to the east. The Iroquois often used present-giving to exchange. This form of trading led the Iroquois to have the tendency to share properties and cooperate in labor. They brought up a war against the neighboring Algonquian peoples and won. Later, they drove the Kwedech westward and out of the lower St. Lawrence river. As a result of conquering neighboring tribes, the Iroquois successfully grew into a strong and large population.
