American folk singer and environmental activist Pete Seeger tells the story of the Peacemaker and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy at Clearwater's Great Hudson River Revival: A Music & Environmental Festival, which was held June 16 and 17 at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.

He tells the crowd how Ben Franklin and other Founding Fathers used the Haudenosaunee Confederacy as a guide to mold the country's democratic government. Seeger ended the talk with a Seneca canoe song.
