Among the American Indians the gatherers-hunters had a different world
view than the horticulturists who, in turn, differed greatly from the
agriculturists, especially those who had ranked societies, and were
sometimes warlike. The political structure of the League of the Iroquois
is said to have provided the bases for the U.S. state system. The ways
of life of the potlatch Indians were totally different from e.g., the
League of the Iroquois. If you haven't yet, do take a good course on
American Indians. Ruby
