Overview

The true story of Hiawatha illustrates how Native Americans were able to govern themselves under political systems far more advanced than most white people imagined them to be. This is the story of what might be called an early Indian version of the United Nations. Many people felt that the famous Iroquois League was more democratic and representative of its people than any government existing in Europe. In fact, many believe the league made such a deep impression on Benjamin Franklin that our constitutional form of government has evolved from it.
