    May 5, 2022

    (Originally published in April 2010) Now that we understand the framework within which the Haudenosaunee lived and within which their laws operated, we can examine their relations with other nations. Specifically with the European nations, the settler nations. And we will find that Haudenosaunee processes both as ritual and as ways to reach decisions, were accepted and used by the settler peoples.
