    war around reciprocal relationships

    Eastern woodland communities organized diplomacy, trade, and war around reciprocal relationships that impressed Europeans as being extraordinarily egalitarian, even democratic.

    What does this "around" mean? "following" or "centered upon"?

    I think this means "adjusted to".

    I think it means 'based on', but I am not a teacher.
