The Iroquois Confederacy, founded 1142, was a model for US Federalism

On the eve of Thanksgiving, I like to remind folks that the natives were not warring savages, but a nature loving and intelligent society. To quote from the PBS story I’m linking to, “The Iroquois Confederacy, founded by the Great Peacemaker in 1142, is the oldest living participatory democracy on earth”.

PBS story. A good start in reading about the Great Peacemaker[PBS](https://www.pbs.org/native-america/blogs/native-voices/how-the-iroquois-great-law-of-peace-shaped-us-democracy/)
