Roots of the Iroquois By Tehanetorens (Ray Fadden)

A vibrant, powerful democracy originated in North America long before the arrival of the Europeans. It grew out of a time of great warfare among the Iroquois Nations. Two wise men, Deganahwideh and Hiawatha, labored for five years to bring about peace. The Iroquois Confederacy that emerged controlled a territory larger than the whole of Europe. Tehanetorens chronicles this pioneering experiment in democracy that stood as a model for the fledgling American government.  Page Count: 144;  Width: 6 inches;  Height: 9 inches;  Format: Soft cover;  Publication Year: 2000 Price: $11.95
