Victor in Ontario County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
People of the Longhouse
The Longhouse was not simply a dwelling. It was an idea:
Hereabouts are five nations, each with its own council fire, yet they shall live together as one household in peace. They shall be the Kanonsionni, the Longhouse. They shall have one mind and live under one law. Thinking shall replace killing, and there shall be one commonwealth.
With these words the founder of the confederacy, who is known as the Peacemaker, addressed Jikonhsaseh, the Mother of Nations, the first woman to embrace the Great Law of Peace.
