KEY: symbolism | application | analysis | from the Iroquois Constitution
ESSAY
36. ANS:

Answers will vary. Possible answers include:

The constitution repeatedly mentions the importance of working as a unified group and approaching things as one mind, one body, and one soul. Even changes are seen as something that all must agree on in order for them to be “rafters” in their building of trust. This certainly indicates that in the past things were not peaceful and that the Iroquois found out the hard way why these measures are absolutely necessary.
