I can't say I know too much about the Haudenosaunee, but the Wikipedia article says their primary mode of food production was farming, so they're not necessarily the prototypical example of life before agriculture.

I did an article a while back about agriculture in the Americas. The three sisters are some of the most influential crops in the history of humankind. Thanksgiving is literally a celebration of Americans teaching Europeans how to farm in their country.
