“Forever” is described by our ancestors in this agreement in these terms: “As long as the grass is green, as long as the water goes down and the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.” This is the first place where these words were spoken. Then you hear them from the movies, you listen to them in different places. The United States has used these real words in some treaties, which were concluded in 19 but this is the first time they have been spoken to here by the Haudenosaunee to say that this contract would be allowed to last forever. We didn`t think your paper would survive the times. The two-ranked wampum treaty, also known as Guswenta or Kaswentha and as the Tawagonshi Agreement of 1613 or the Tawagonshi Treaty, is a mutual cooperation agreement concluded in 1613 between representatives of the Five Nations of the Haudenosaunee (or Irookesen) and representatives of the Dutch government in present-day New York.  The agreement is considered by the Haudenosaunee as the basis for all its subsequent contracts with the European and North American governments and citizens of those nations, including the treaty on the contractual chain with the British of 1677 and the Treaty of Canandaigua with the United States of 1794. When the dominant European powers changed in North America, the chain of alliances with the Haudenosaunee was constantly renewed. In 1755, William Johnson renewed the concept of the Covenant Chain at a council meeting with the Iroquois by reaffirming the symbolic significance of this agreement and calling it the “chain of the covenant of love and friendship.” He explained that the chain was attached to the still mountains and that almost every year the British and Iroquais would come together to “strengthen and clear up” the chain. Contractual assemblies, such as those of 1754 in Albany, served to “strengthen and clarify” the chain of the alliance. The Haudenosaunee and the Dutch agreed on three principles to make this treaty the last. The first was friendship; The Haudenosaunee and their white brothers will live in friendship. The second principle is peace; there will be peace between their two men. The last principle is eternal; agreement will still be in place.
The strengths of this agreement are first of all, we will call ourselves brothers. This series of purple wampum on the right represents the Ongwahoway or the Indians; It`s his canoe. Canoeing with people, our government, our religion or our way of life. The treaty is venerated spiritually and culturally and widely accepted among the indigenous peoples of the territories concerned and documented by the wampum belt and oral tradition.  However, in recent years, the authenticity of subsequent written versions of the agreement has been discussed, with some scientific sources claiming that a contract between the Dutch States and the Mohawks did not take place or did not take place at a later date.          In August 2013, the Journal of Early American History published a special issue devoted to the study of the tradition of the two lines.  It is an agreement between our two peoples.
