The Tree of the Great Peace

I Deganawidah And the chiefs of the Five Nations of the Great Peace We shall uproot the tallest pine

Into the cavity thereby made

We shall cast all weapons of war

Into the depths of the earth

Into the deep underneath . . . We shall cast all weapons of war

We shall bury them from sight forever . . . Then we shall plant again the tree . . . Thus shall the Great Peace be established Iroquois poem
