A rich history of peacekeeping and inter-tribal diplomacy existed in the present-day Northeast United States, and traditions thrived that helped lay the groundwork for what we consider to be American democracy. Our host, Iakowi:he’ne’ Oakes, speaks with Kanasaraken Loran Thompson to uncover how a great set of laws and treaties maintained harmony from present day Pennsylvania to Connecticut. 

Presented in collaboration with the American Indian Community House.
