The Constitution of the Iroquois Confederacy

I have read today, with much delight, that the Senate has rejected the Gay Marriage Ban amendment to our Constitution. Some of you may or may not have heard that parts of our Constitution owe their existence to the Confederation of the Iroquois nation.

With immigration also at the forefront of news these days it would do us all good to remember that we are all immigrants in this land.

Please read and enjoy.
