Welcome to American Freedom Corp. where we “Celebrate the origins of freedom and equality in the Great Law of Peace, Declaration of Independence, the American Constitution and the Bill of Rights”!
This is absolutely, unequivocally historical fact.
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 Great Law of Peace of the Iroquois Nation.
In the 18th Century, the Iroquois Confederation under the Great Law of Peace was the oldest, most highly evolved, participatory, self-representative government on Earth.
The Great Law of Peace was a 1000 year old vehicle for creating harmony, unity and respect among human beings. Its recognition of individual liberty and justice surpassed that of any democracies or government in existence, at that time.
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.

“We the People” comes from an ancient Native American phrase describing freedom of speech and equality among the people. Below are transcripts of our National Treasures from the National Archives.
Our Founding Fathers learned from The Great Law of Peace these principles:
Freedom of speech,
Freedom of religion,
The right of women to participate in government,
Separation of powers,
Checks and balances within government.
A government “of the people, by the people and for the people”
”Three branches of government: Two houses and a Grand counsel,
A Women’s Council, which is the Iroquois equivalent of our Supreme Court – settling disputes and judging legal violations.
The central idea underlying Iroquois political philosophy is that peace is the will of the Creator, and the ultimate spiritual goal and natural order among humans.
