THE CONFEDERACY BELT

 

This extremely old, intricately beaded belt depicts in great detail the organization of the Six Nations Confederacy of the Iroquois under the aegis of The Great Tree Of Peace

It has been in our family for several generations.  It came originally from the Onondaga Nation and thence to Mohawk Nation and then back to Onondaga -- and then to us.

When our family moves to a new home, the first thing we do is to post the Confederacy Belt in such a fashion that it faces the East.
