Paulaine Johnson in Matilda Joslyn Gage 1880

Matilda Joslyn Gage was a suffragist, a Native American activist, an abolitionist, and author. In her 1893 book, Woman, Church and State she cited the Iroquois society, as a 'Matriarchate', noting that a system of descent through the female line and female property rights led to a more equal relationship between men and women. Gage spent time among the Iroquois and received the name Karonienhawi - "she who holds the sky”. She was admitted into the Iroquois Council of Matrons.
