    But why don't you tell us about something the Iroquois adopted.
    How about everything they use today, everything from automobiles to television to fast food to the internet. You claim they are still some sort of nation, so therefore anything modern Iroquois own, use, or do that was not originally theirs is something they adopted from Americans.

    And I ask you what America adopted from the Iroquois. Don't get me wrong; I concede that the list would be long, but it certainly wouldn't outweigh what the Iroquois adopted from America. Not by a long shot.
    Unbelievable!

      You don't want to go there, she's about to give you a twilight zone version of American history, starting with the Indians taught the Dutch democracy and going from there!
      Ja, I know. orange and myself already debated this with her and WON. I see no point to continue the debate from the Civilizations section here.

      Ribannah-
      Er, no, sorry, nothing in the League's constitution says anything like that.
      Look. The USA allowed them to do that, but they aren't a soverign nation. The USA can draft them (I believe... not sure however) But since they vote in the USA's elections, they are not a soverign nation.

      By the same reasoning, they are citizens of the League, since they get to vote in their own elections as well.
      Or, since I get to vote in the European elections, and that makes me a citizen of Europe, you want the flags of all the member states of the EU removed?
      that's why the EU flag is good!
      They are all sovereign nations because it is an economic and political union, but they all retain their national borders! Anyways- perhaps they should be removed... But only if Europe is united in Air Traffic Lanes (what the strikes in France and Italia were about), etc.

      USA has full free airspace over the Iroquois league, and, I am fairly sure, their air traffic controlers are united. Which is what the EU is unable to do.

      Thus, until that, and a unification of the sewer systems, greater unification of traffic systems, etc. the EU nation-states still retain their soverignity. (Although we can all hope that they will someday unite and form Pax Europa! )

      So Cuba wasn't a country between 1902 and 1959?
      Not really. The USA were ********. Cuba and Panama were more like satellite provinces, along with The Phillipines. [Does anyone wonder why those nations hate america it's because America controlled them.]

      Darius
      She's going to say the constitution but we have disproven THAT claim. (about a year ago )

      Good refutation

      Further, the Americans were assimilated more into the Iroquois ways than the other way around, so let's just dump the flag of the USA instead.
      That's ****!
      Americans took over, killed the Iroquois ancestors, etc.

      Tis' true that the Iroquois taught the Europeans how to use certain crops, etc. but if you are taking that token, we must have the Inca flag as well

          Darkcloud;

          If I recall correctly, The United States, to this day, treats Indian Nations as if they are, well, Nations.
          Today, you are the waves of the Pacific, pushing ever eastward. You are the sequoias rising from the Sierra Nevada, defiant and enduring.

            No, that doesn't count. The Iroquois helped to develop these things alongside all other modernizing nations.

              The reason that I am involved is the quote that the US got more from the Iroquois than the Iroquois got from the US (I assume this means the Europeans that came over). I am all for including a ton of flags if Markos or Dan would like to. Otherwise it doesn't matter. I just would like to understand this one claim. As Darius showed there is a ton that the Iroquois and all the world has gotten from America/Europe. I will agree that we all get stuff from others as well. But more from the Iroquois...

                Whereas I protested when someone claimed that the Iroquois were entirely assimilated by the USA.

                Tniem, for a second example, how about the right to vote?

                    How? I'm perplexed by this statement. Merely being around when these things are being developed is not considered being an integral part. Or having a few employees, scientists, engineers, etc. of Iroquois origin involved does not make it an Iroquois achievement.

                    Tniem, for a second example, how about the right to vote?
                    How about ancient Greece? Or several small colonial groups with their own systems?

                    Accept it, the colonies did not adopt the Iroquois political system. The constitution and values of the United States was a result of the colonists' circumstances. In response to religious persecution and underrepresentation attributed to their sovereign, they rebelled and set up a nation that would protect them from that. The democratic republic they set up was just a logical response to their circumstances.
                    Unbelievable!

                      Panag, my friend, the other nations did not have to pass a poll to be allowed to show their flag, so why should that be demanded of the Iroquois?


                      "Our wise forefathers established Union and Amity between the Five Nations. This has made us formidable; this has given us great Weight and Authority with our neighboring Nations. We are a powerful Confederacy; and by your observing the same methods, our wise forefathers have taken, you will acquire such Strength and power. Therefore, whatever befalls you, never fall out with one another." Canassatego, the great Iroquois chief, advising the assembled colonial governors on Iroquois concepts of unity in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 1744.

                      On August 3, 1990, Bush declared the month of November as "National American Indian Heritage Month. Activities planned will focus on Native American contributions to this nation for the past five centuries such as the foundation of the U.S. Constitution that was based upon the government of the Iroquois Confederacy of Nations

                      ... The most solid evidence Weatherford cites for the Iroquois influence upon our federated system of democracies are the speeches, writings, and connections of Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was a printer by trade, and had been hired as the official printer for the State of Pennsylvania, a job that included printing documents of the Iroquois League of Nations. Beginning with this connection, Franklin learned of the federated democratic structure of these Indians, and he repeatedly advocated their form of government to the leaders of the American Colonies. These leaders, including Thomas Jefferson, adopted many of the practices of the Indian democracies, including the ability to recall an elected official, the prohibition of military leaders also serving in public office, giving individual states rights to govern themselves internally, and prohibiting one group from shouting down another by allowing only one person to speak at a time during official proceedings
