Welcome to American Freedom Corp, where we “Celebrate the origins of the American Constitution and Bill of Rights”!
In the 18th Century, the Iroquois Confederation was the oldest, most highly evolved, participatory, self-representative government on Earth.
When the Founding Fathers looked for examples of effective government and human liberty upon which to model a Constitution to unite the thirteen colonies, they found it in the government of the Iroquois Nation.
This is absolutely, unequivocally historical fact.
In 1987, the United States Senate acknowledged that the Great Law of Peace of the Iroquois Nations served as a model for the Constitution of the United States. (U.S. S. Con. Res. 76, 2 Dec. 1987).
And since the U.S. Constitution was a model for the charter of the United Nations, the Iroquois Great Law of Peace is also the basis of international law.
For “We the People” looking to learn more about the history of the American people and their path to FREEDOM, please use the resources below. “We the People” comes from an ancient Native American phrase describing freedom of speech and equality among the people. For those “We the People” who want to increase their knowledge of the origins, history and meaning of freedom, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, below are transcripts of our National Treasures from the National Archives.
