may 13, 1450 - Five distinct Aboriginal nations
Five distinct Aboriginal nations – the Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Cayuga, and Onondaga – formed the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy. This may have been the first federated government known in history. A Grand Council of 50 representatives from five nations met to make major decisions based on consensus.
