In my opinion the Iroquois Confederacy was
democratic because democracy means EVERY
ONE gets a voice in decision making, and since they used consensus everyone did get a voice, Their way is really good because everyone is happy. This way no arguments will happen. 2002 March (cc) image by jantik on Flickr Iroquois Confederacy tiemline Wampum belt Pictures!! .They advised the clan mothers

Onondaga (keepers of the council fire) were right in the middle of all the nations. This order can also be turned into a Hiawatha wampum belt. There is also a two row wampum belt representing the treaty between the french and the Iroquois. 0 B.C.E. 500 500 1000 1500 2000 When confederacy was formed 1142 Researchers believe that the confederacy started

mother People In The Government Out of all the government in the Iroquois, The clan mothers
had the most power. Then came the hoyaneh with the second most
power, since the Clan mothers were in charge of them, last but not least the women's and men's councils come third, but that never meant
they had no rights References Textbook HOW DID THE IROQUOIS MAKE DECISSIONS The Iroquois made decisions by consensus. They believed everybody got the right to have a voice if one nation does not agree, the decision is not used. This is a great way to make decisions through government but also it would take a pretty long time, so the Iroquois had lots of patience. Consensus means that people discuss the issue until they reach a decission they can agree on. Consensus means EVERONE has to agree. In canada we use Votinf. Only majority agrees but its a lot quicker. Tree of peace Long House The long house was where the Iroquois confederacy lived. In each long house, lived a clan from a nation. The long house as you can see was very long. The people in their
in the clan ate, slept, and talked about important events in there. On top of the long house were holes because, in the middle of the long house was a fire place and the holes let the smoke out.
