Rebuilding the Iroquois Confederacyby Karoniaktajeh. "THE seeds of decay were planned before the Iroquois Confederacy became great and famous. The Five Nations had joined in an alliance under the guidance of the great Founder Deganawida who wanted all the native nations in America to be members of the alliance which became known as the Iroquois Confederacy. He wanted all the nations to be equal in power, influence and legal authority. He had no plans for a super nation or nations to lord it over other nations. Deganawida wanted all the Rotiyaner [chiefs] to be equal in power. He had no wishes to see a single individual elected as a grand or supreme Chief as such a position only leads to errors and corruptions. He got the original Five Nations of the Confederacy to offer up the position of "Grand Chief" to Creation that does not err, cannot be corrupted and cannot die."
