The Great Law of Peace




 

The Great Law

“The root of the word ‘society’ is ‘friendship’ and ‘companionship’. This concept is the basis of the Kaienerekowa, the Great Law of Peace, the Constitution of the Five Nations Iroquois Confederacy. The Great Law is a way of life that was given to us as we saw it. It’s how we are to relate to the universe, which is the way that I have tried to live.” Kahn-Tineta Horn The Great Law of Peace, Kaia’nereh:kowa, is the law of Great Turtle Island. The basis is the medicine, Kanon’kwa:tsera. The goal is to spread peace and stop war throughout the world. Now, it’s our pleasure to bring to you both the PDF narrative and the original archived video footage, converted to digital format for your enjoyment and understanding.  This 4 part series is proudly narrated by kahentinetha, karonhiaktajeh, ganyetahawi, as well as children wendahawi and kaniehtiio. So please, take some time, read and listen to our original constitution, that has delivered us to peace for centuries past, and shall for centuries to come.
