The Creator sent a prophet, Peacemaker, to spread good among the Haudenosaunee people. The Peacemaker travelled to many communities, teaching the people the Great Law of Peace. Peacemaker convinced each chief of the communities to join the Great League of Peace. The confederacy was united by these chiefs who became the chiefs of the confederacy. The goal of the confederacy was to spread unity, harmony and democracy among the Haudenosaunee people. The six nations involved are Seneca, Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga, Mohawk, Tuscarora.
