    Profesor,

    How much truth is there to the claim that the Iroquois Constitution/Confederacy influenced ours? Is there any evidence of this? Did most of the founders even know they had a constitution?

    Thank you

    I don’t know of any substantial evidence of that. There’s certainly no record of it in the four volumes of Farrand’s Records of the Federal Convention, nor have I come across it in the ratification materials–and I know the Virginia documents quite well.
