Summary, etc.:
"The Great Law of Peace is the profound and enduring story of the formation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Inspired by a lifelong interest and desire to learn more about the Great law, Six Nations artist Elizabeth Doxtater undertook a life-changing project. Her goal was to recreate The Great Law of Peace and the story of The Peacemaker using the medium of cornhusk. The result of this effort was 'Art of Peace', an installation of over 100 cornhusk dolls, representing the 50 Haudenosaunee chiefs and clanmothers, along with the historical figures the Peacemajker, Tsikonsase, Thatataho and Ayonwatha."--Back cover.
