The people of the Six Nations, also known by the French term, Iroquois  Confederacy, call themselves the Hau de no sau nee (ho dee noe sho nee)
meaning People Building a Long House. Located in the northeastern region of North America, originally the Six Nations was five and included the
Mohawks, Oneidas, Onondagas, Cayugas, and Senecas. The sixth nation, the Tuscaroras, migrated into Iroquois country in the early eighteenth century.
Together these peoples comprise the oldest living participatory democracy on earth. Their story, and governance truly based on the consent of the
governed, contains a great deal of life-promoting intelligence for those of us not familiar with this area of American history. The original United
States representative democracy, fashioned by such central authors as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, drew much inspiration from this
confederacy of nations. In our present day, we can benefit immensely, in our quest to establish anew a government truly dedicated to all life's
liberty and happiness much as has been practiced by the Six Nations for over 800 hundred years.
