Turtle Island Confederacies: Relationships and Balance

Roots of Democracy Series
Thursday, February 11, 2021 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Democracy flourished on the North American continent well before any of the American founding fathers were born. Around 800 CE, the Three Fires Confederacy of the Anishinaabe and, later, between 1450 and 1660 CE, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy were established as models of participatory democracy, sustaining peace and cooperation between Indigenous people for many generations.

Watch a recording of the Wisconsin Academy's Roots of Democracy series discussion with three First Nations scholars who explore the conditions that gave rise to these two confederacies and the lessons we can learn from their approaches to democratic principles.
