Iroquois Contribution


      In 1988, on the 200th Anniversary of the signing of the US Constitution, "The Congress acknowledged the historical debt that the US owes the Iroquois Confederacy and other Indian Nations for their demonstration of enlightened, democratic principles of Government."

(This priceless gift to the US and world came from a balanced society where the Chiefs were groomed (from birth) and chosen by the Clan Mothers. The world is also grateful to the Clan Mother for helping give American women the vote, as they adopted the women who became the Suffragettes.)

"And the original framers of the Constitution, including George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, are known to have greatly admired the concepts of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. Their model resolved the major dilemma: How could 13 sovereign states be made into one country, without each one giving up its power."
