Tree of Peace

The wampum belt pattern within this sculpture is called the Wing or Dust Fan and represents the everlasting tree of peace. It symbolizes the permanence of The Iroquois Confederacy. It is said to be a great white pine tree, and was planted when the Peacemaker came to visit our people and bring the good message of peace, power, and righteousness. Under the white roots, which spread in all four directions, all the weapons of our people were buried for purposes of creating an everlasting peace.
