I want you to discuss the Haudenosaunee/Iroquois Great Law of Peace.
Important points to consider:
How the alliance of the Five (later Six) Nations came about.
Relations between tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy and early European colonists.
Important points of how the Confederacy worked, and evidence of how the Haudenosaunee/Iroquois system of governance may have influenced the Constitution of the United States.
This is a formal essay, but I want you to summarize and analyze these questions in your own words. I want you to explain how you understand these issues. The materials I provide give you plenty of background, but I’m not looking for an essay filled with quotations. I want you to read the background, think about these questions, and then provide your own best understanding.
