The Onondaga Nation is the Central Fire of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy. This sovereign Indigenous government, which follows The Great Law of Peace, inspired American democracy. The Onondaga people advocate for the environment and share prophecies about climate change, while engaged in a battle with New York State over ancestral lands stolen in defiance of a treaty made in 1794 with the U.S. government.
The Good Mind is the Onondaga and Haudenosaunee philosophy and way of life. When the Peacemaker brought his message 1,000 years ago to the shores of sacred Onondaga Lake, he united warring peoples with a system of governance based on using the Good Mind to make decisions not only for the present, but for the next seven generations.
