I am here, Benjamin Franklin.

Yes, I was aware of the Iroquois Confederacy, and there were those of us who incorporated some of their ideas into the government. But still, we could not see any Native contribution as equal to the European models and ideas. Contradictory? Yes. So whereas I greatly admired their accomplishment, it was hard to acknowledge it.
