The Five Nations of the Iroquois were locked in centuries of war, revenge killings, hate and cannibalism. Then a mysterious Huron man appeared on a quest to unite the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Seneca peoples together under the Great Law of Peace.  This would become the Iroquois Confederacy.  A Native American government with equal rights and a representative government that left Europeans in bewilderment. These are the histories and legends of the Haudenosaunee.  The People of the Longhouse.
