Jessica Rohan, of MUNCHIES, has briefly introduced the latest version of Conflict Kitchen, a Pittsburgh Pennsylvania restaurant dedicated to serving foods from Nations which the United States is in conflict. The restaurant is currently featuring a menu dedicated to meals from nations within the Haudenosaunee Confederacy.

According to the Haudenosaunee Confederacy OSWE:Ge Grand River,

 "The nations of the confederacy recognize themselves as Haudenosaunee from their own language meaning “They made the house,” symbolizing all the nations coming together as one. From east to west the original nations of the confederacy are Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Seneca. 

The Tuscarora nation joined the league after leaving their traditional territory in North Carolina and Virginia to become the sixth nation. Any issues the Tuscarora members have are submitted through the Cayugas. Other nations like the Tuscaroras have been welcomed into the confederacy including the Delaware nation, the Wyendot nation and the Tutela nation...".

"The Haudenosaunee Confederacy, also known as the Iroquois Confederacy, is made up of six North American nations; many consider it the oldest participatory democracy on Earth. There are 567 sovereign American Indian nations within US borders, but to most Americans, they’re totally invisible.

....There is no reservation land in Pennsylvania or Ohio, and few Native communities in the area; general public ignorance can make life difficult for the indigenous people who live there..."
