The Iroquois version of a confederation made from 5 tribes, two large and 3 small turned into used to solve the struggle between the small and large states. The Iroquois had a legislature product of two our bodies. One the council of chiefs had chiefs from each tribe giving same energy to the small and massive tribes. the opposite council had one consultant from each long residence.
