Indian Time - A Voice from the Eastern Door

Adodarhoh Belt

 


Reprinted from Wampum Belts of the Iroquois by Tehanetorens

It is provided thus: To you, Adodarhoh and your cousin chiefs, fourteen of you altogether, this shall be your duty. You shall keep The Confederate Council Fire (Government) clean all around. You shall allow no dust or dirt to be seen around the Council Fire. I therefore lay a seagull wing near you. Take this wing and sweep the dust and dirt away from the Council Fire. If you see any crawling creature approaching the Confederate Council Fire, I lay a stick by you with which you are to pitch the crawling creature from the Council Fire, and your cousin chiefs will act with you at all times. Dust, dirt, and crawling creatures signify a matter or proposition brought before the Council which would be injurious to The Confederate Nation. If you and your chiefs fail to reject it alone, you shall call the rest of the Confederate Chiefs to your aid.
