IROQUOIS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION
The U.S. Constitution is not solely White man's law, IT IS NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN LAW.
For those who disrespect the laws of The Constitution as it is NOW written and outlined to bring fairness in laws for every person living in the U.S. do you not understand that the laws were founded by Native American Indians who had fair and ancient laws systems that pre-dated European laws brought to the Americas.
For those who spit on the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights and its laws, you spit in the face of every single Native American Indian who inspired those laws.
You spit in the face of every Native American Indian like me who UNDERSTANDS the foundation and need for those laws to protect our rights.
LAWS THAT DO NOT OPPRESS, DO NOT DISCRIMINATE, DO NOT SILENCE FREE SPEECH, DO NOT INTERFERE WITH PERSONAL RIGHT TO RELIGIOUS BELIEFS OR FREE WILL CHOICE IN FAITH, DO NOT PROMOTE SLAVERY, DO NOT PROMOTE ANYTHING THAT GOES AGAINST THE INHERENT RIGHTS OF ANY RACE OF MAN LIVING IN THE U.S. FROM THE DAY THE LAWS WERE WRITTEN, TO PRESENT DAY AMERICA!!!

H.Con.Res. 331 (100th): A concurrent resolution to acknowledge the contribution of the Iroquois Confederacy of Nations to the development of the United States Constitution and to reaffirm the continuing government-to-government relationship between Indian tribes and the United States ...
... established in the Constitution
"Whereas the original framers of the Constitution, including, most notably, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, are known to have greatly admired the concepts of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy; Whereas the confederation of the original Thirteen Colonies into one republic was influenced by the political system developed by the Iroquois Confederacy as were many of the democratic prin- ciples which were incorporated into the Constitution itself; and. Whereas, since the formation of the United States, the Congress has recognized the sovereign status of Indian tribes and has, through
CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS—OCT. 21, 1988 102 STAT. 4933 the exercise of powers reserved to the Federal Government in the Commerce Clause of the Constitution (art. I, s.2, cl. 3), dealt with Indian tribes on a government-to-government basis and has, through the treaty clause (art. II, s.2, cl. 2) entered into three hundred and seventy treaties with Indian tribal Nations; Whereas, from the first treaty entered into with an Indian Nation, the treaty with the Delaware Indians of September 17, 1778, the Congress has assumed a trust responsibility and obligation to Indian tribes and their members; Whereas this trust responsibility calls for Congress to "exercise the utmost good faith in dealings with Indians" as provided for in the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, (1 Stat. 50); Whereas the judicial system of the United States has consistently recognized and reaffirmed this special relationship: Now, there- fore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That— (1) the Congress, on the occasion of the two hundredth anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution, acknowledges the contribution made by the Iroquois Confed- eracy and other Indian Nations to the formation and develop- ment of the United States; (2) the Congress also hereby reaffirms the constitutionally recognized government-to-government relationship with Indian tribes which has been the cornerstone of this Nation's official Indian policy; (3) the Congress specifically acknowledges and reaffirms the trust responsibility and obligation of the United States Govern- ment to Indian tribes, including Alaska Natives, for their preservation, protection, and enhancement, including the provi- sion of health, education, social, and economic assistance pro- grams as necessary, and including the duty to assist tribes in their performance of governmental responsibility to provide for the social and economic well-being of their members and to preserve tribal cultural identity and heritage; and (4) the Congress also acknowledges the need to exercise the utmost good faith in upholding its treaties with the various tribes, as the tribes understood them to be, and the duty of a great Nation to uphold its legal and moral obligations for the benefit of all of its citizens so that they and their posterity may also continue to enjoy the rights they have enshrined in the United States Ck)nstitution for time immemorial. Agreed to October 21, 1988."
