The book by Gregory Schaaf PhD, written in 2003, is not being reprinted and is growing more rare and expensive by the day. It's the most thorough and accurate book on the U.S. Constitution and the Great Law of Peace, so why is it not being reprinted?
From Gregory Schaaf [author]
"Featuring a foreward by Mohawk Chief Jake Swamp and comparison by Gregory Schaaf, Ph.D., this book offers clear evidence on American Indian influences on the U.S. Constitution.
* A classic comparison of America's two original founding documents.
* A contribution for teaching Constitutional rights.
* Appropriate reading for children of all ages as well as adults.
*Popular in public and private schools throughout the United States.
Every American citizen should read and re-read the U.S. Constitution to understand our fundamental rights. This book presents the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights in comparison with similar passages from the Iroquois Great Law of Peace, America's oldest founding document. Perhaps a thousand years ago, the Great Law established the Iroquois Confederacy as a participatory democracy with separation of powers and rights for women.
Arranged side-by-side in easy to read columns, the comparisons are startling and thought provoking. The evidence along with other testimony was considered so powerful and persuasive, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution 100-0 officially recognizing for the first time in history that the United States was "explicitly modeled upon the Iroquois Confederacy."
"Excellent book! Five star, no question, hands down!
This book should be required reading in every U.S. history and U.S. Government classroom nationwide. It is evident that painstaking effort has gone into the creation of this section by section, two column, side by side comparison. It would be difficult for anyone to truly understand the U.S. Constitution without first comparing it to the Great Law of Peace. Congratulations Dr. Schaaf on a job well done! I wish it were more affordable so that the greater population may have easier access to it."
"Essential for students of government
This little book has clause-by-clause comparisons of the constitution of the Iroquois Federation, known as the Great Law of Peace, with the US Constitution. It shows how much of the US Constitution was inspired by the Iroquois. You can also see where key aspects of the Great Law of Peace were not incorporated, much to our detriment. The role of the Grandmothers in the Great Law of Peace is an example that I think is particularly important. We live now in a nation governed mostly by uninitiated men without any meaningful check and balance from the elder feminine perspective. Is it any wonder that we are devastating the very lands upon which our future generations depend?"
"In 1998 Congress recognized the Great Law of Peace as the foundation for the US Constitution. All Americans will enjoy the contributions of Native People to dignity, decency and respect for others in the spirit of the law."
Please tell your favorite podcasters to ask Dr. Schaaf to be a guest, to help raise awareness of our shared sacred liberty and to drive the demand for his irreplaceable book. This vital information exposes the racist insanity being forced on our children.
The U.S. Constitution and the Great Law of Peace
by Molly Larkin
"[T]he U.S. Constitution is modeled in both principle and form on the Great Law of Peace of the Native American tribe known as the Iroquois. This is absolutely, unequivocally historical fact. While there may have been other influences, when compared side by side, the influence of the Great Law of Peace is irrefutable. In 1987, the United States Senate acknowledged that the Great Law of Peace of the Iroquois Nations served as a model for the Constitution of the United States. (U.S. S. Con. Res. 76, 2 Dec. 1987). And since the U.S. Constitution was a model for the charter of the United Nations, the Iroquois Great Law of Peace is also a basis of international law.
When the Founding Fathers looked for examples of effective government and human liberty upon which to model a Constitution to unite the thirteen colonies, they found it in the government of the Iroquois Nation. In the 18th Century, the Iroquois League was the oldest, most highly evolved participatory democracy on Earth. [...]
The Great Law of Peace includes:
freedom of speech
freedom of religion
the right of women to participate in government
separation of powers
checks and balances within government
a government "of the people, by the people and for the people"
three branches of government: two houses and a grand counsel
A Women's Council, which is the Iroquois equivalent of our Supreme Court -settling disputes and judging legal violations
The central idea underlying Iroquois political philosophy is that peace is the will of the Creator, and the ultimate spiritual goal and natural order among humans. [...]
Several delegates from the Iroquois Confederacy attended the Continental Congress in 1776 as it wrote the Declaration of Independence and drafted the Constitution of the United States, modeling it on the Iroquois Constitution. Three weeks later, the Declaration of Independence was signed, and the United States of America was born. [...]
[O]ur forefathers copied the Great Law of a people whose land we stole and against whom our government committed genocide, and then kept it a secret for two hundred years. It just makes me want to cry. Please teach your children the truth of the history of our great country."

Facebook hides ALL my Great Law posts; here are two I thought to screensave; If all Americans know our nation is founded on Native American wisdom, POOF goes their racist narrative that apparently goes back a long way, since it's not taught in our public schools...
The most recent...
Imo, my great seal comment is reasonably conspiratorial, but here's another view...
"In the left talon, the eagle grips thirteen arrows. Those arrows come not from Greece or Rome. They come straight from Iroquois imagery. Just as Deganawidah and Canassatego used five arrows to illustrate the strength of the Iroquois League and urged the colonies to likewise unite, the thirteen arrows represent the eventual uniting of the thirteen colonies."

FB always calls it 'spam'...
FB showed me this on Aug 28, so apparently they've hidden five of my Great Law comments...
"The National Archives' task force on racism claimed in a newly unearthed report that the agency's own rotunda housing the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights is an example of "structural racism."
The report to the country's top librarian...also claimed that the Founding Fathers and other white historical figures are depicted too positively."
"Have we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held responsible for things that happened before they wre born, while other people are not held responsible for hat they themselve are doing today?" ~ Thomas Sowell
Some interesting FB comments [adding over time]...
From Aharon Benitzak To Linda MacLeod Goodman
"Benjamin Frankling wedded key elements of Iroquois Nations Governmental Law into the framing of the Constitution. This is historical fact. Anyone living in Iroquois country knows this or should know this, especially President Biden, who earned his law degree at Syracuse University. Syracuse is the homeland of the Onondaga Tribe of the Iroquois, geographically central to all the Iroquois Tribes and where the Iroquois Nations would gather to make decisions affecting all their Tribes."
From Mary Lohmeyer To William Stickevers
"Like the person who said I have the wrong sources on critical race theory because I said it promotes shaming and hatred of whites and dumbing down of STEM and does nothing for blacks except to make them feel more victimized. CRT is a tool of elites who care nothing for most blacks or for anyone else except their own power mongering. I saw similar crap go around in the '60's and it created a huge conservative backlash against it. I predict CRT and other woke ideologies is doing this now and will continue to do so in the future. To quote the saying carved into the National Archives doorway : "The past is prologue.""
