 USA has a constitution and it was created on September 17,1787, but hundreds of years before that, in American there was another constitution and it was called The great Law of Peace or Gayanashagowa  by the Iroquois Nations. It was written down not on a piece of paper, but it was written in symbols and later it was in interpreted and written down in English. Also it has been said that some or laws in the constitution was taken by The Great Law of Peace.

 

 It has 117 articles and it all here :http://www.constitution.org/cons/iroquois.htm

There is also thought that the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath was also part of the basis for the US declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.

 

That said, the US Constitution is just that .... the "US" stands for "United States" not the plural first person "us". So, though that US Constitution may belong to the nation residing in the center portion of the North American Continent ...... it is not "MY" Constitution even if the possessive pronoun for US is ours and the possessive determiner is our (Thread Title - A Constitution Before Ours)

 

 

Then again, depending on exactly what definition of constitution we are talking about: because, at times, MY constitution is not the best

 

1) the system of fundamental principles according to which a nation, state, corporation, or the like, is governed.
2) the document embodying these principles.
3) the way in which a thing is composed or made up; makeup; composition: the chemical constitution of the cleanser.
4) the physical character of the body as to strength, health, etc.: He has a strong constitution.
5) Medicine/Medical, Psychology. the aggregate of a person's physical and psychological characteristics.

A sad history when many can "discover and overtake" a land that is already populated. Humans cannot overturns such injustice. Only Jehovah can reverse the inequities that man has imposed upon fellow humans :(
