According to this interpretation, the Iroquois League refers to the ceremonial and cultural institution that is embodied in the Great Council, which still exists. The Iroquois Confederation was the decentralized political and diplomatic unit created in response to European colonization, dissolved after the British defeat of the American War of Independence.

French, Dutch and English settlers, both in New France (Canada) and in the thirteen colonies, recognized the need to gain favour with the Iroquais who occupied a significant part of the country west of the colonial colonies.

The Iroquois Or Haudenosaunee Confederacy was probably founded by the peacemaker at an unknown time, probably between 1450 and 1660, and brought together five different nations in the southern Great Lakes region to form the Great League of Peace.  Each nation within this Iroquois federation had its own language, territory and function in the league. Iroqua`s power extended to present-day Canada, west along the Great Lakes and on both sides of the Allegheny Mountains to present-day Virginia and Kentucky and the Ohio Valley.
