Abstract : This thesis examines how the Iroquois Confederacy dealt with the centrifugal and centripetal forces it experienced in its over 300 year existence. Chapter one outlines an overall introduction to the subject. It also shows how important both centrifugal and centripetal forces were in influencing the Confederacy's Center of Gravity (CoG). Chapter two tells how both centrifugal and centripetal forces worked within the Confederacy prior to the end of the French and Indian War (1763). Prior to 1763, centripetal forces acted as the dominant forces. Chapter three describes the changes that occurred between the two forces after 1763. Chapter four provides conclusions that explain the changes in dominance between the two forces.
