Revisiting the Iroquois Constitution

Here is a copy of The Constitution of the Iroquois Confederation, which allegedly influenced the Founding Fathers when they were thinking of ways to form their new government.


All Lords of the Five Nations Confederacy must be honest in all things. They must not idle or gossip, but be men possessing those honorable qualities that make true royaneh. It shall be a serious wrong for anyone to lead a Lord into trivial affairs, for the people must ever hold their Lords high in estimation out of respect to their honorable positions.
