48. even during that period, men only made political decisions

I was under the impression that was limited to only three of the Canadian tribes rather than the Iroquois nation as a whole... and that even during that period, men only made political decisions (e.g., going to war with the Algonquin, Huron, et.al., establishment of the Iroquois League, etc.), meaning that any power held by women was at the pleasure of men granting it, in all practical effect, not rulers at all, but figureheads, mother-figures, extensions of the personification of the Fertility Goddess, etc,
