Giese, Paula "Wampum--Native American Beadwork" __________________________ 17, Dec. 1996 www.kstorm.net/isk/beads/wampum.html Symbol Of The Iroquios Confederacy Women had very important roles in the Iroquois society. Women were in charge of farming with both labor and planning as part of their responsibilities. In their society, the women had great influence and had the power to choose the chief that represented their tribe. The women had an important role regarding the council. They were in charge of choosing and replacing chiefs. There were two reasons why a chief would be replaced; for not fulfilling their responsibility of putting the peoples' needs first or a death. The chiefs were then chosen, within the boundaries and rules, by the women. The only way a woman could sit on the council was when they acted as a stand in or regent. Decisions at all levels, in the Iroquios society, were reached by consensus. A consensus is defined as an agreement by everyone involved in a decision, achieved through a process of discussion, in which everybody has a voice and works for the good of the whole group. Most of the discussions and votes for consensus happened in the longhouses. In a consesus vote, the decision is unanimous, which means everyone agrees. The society used a complex system of checking and balancing the votes to ensure fairness, equality and consensus. Largest Stock of Native Flags. Wampum--Treaties, Scared Records.
