Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We could get into a detailed discussion of this topic, but Jennings suffers from "anthro ego" disease.  Basically, the Rotinossonni never claimed to be an empire; the early anthros did, romantasizing the natives as some kind of heroic natural Romans.

One of the first true anthropological studies in the New World was written in 1851 by Lewis Henry Morgan, "League of the Iroquois."  His works were read by Marx and Engels in detail.  While he got many details of daily life more or less, he widely missed the basis of Rotinnosonni culture.

While not being an empire, just ask Franklin and his comtemporaries whether they were crucial to the structure and relations between the colonies themselves, as well as between the colonies and England.
