There Is Hope: Time to Follow an Indigenous Model for Peace in America

I’m a disciple of John Mohawk, a dearly departed Seneca philosopher and professor.  He introduced me to the Great Law, a model for peacemaking and peacekeeping amongst warring nations—communities where there is a genuine divide.  I’m simply going to quote his 2004 take on the Great Law from “The Warriors Who Turned To Peace” and hopefully start a conversation about how we can heal some intergenerational wounds and provide our children a new start.

See the related paper, “Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Peacemaking Protocol,” a memo by Native American Rights Fund law clerk Olan Leimomi Morgan (2016).
