The Peacemaker

On Friday, a few of the Juniors shared a special presentation with us. This is a very old story about the Peacemaker, known as Onondaga: “Onondaga Lake is one of the most important places in the accounts of the founding of the Haudenosaunee, or “People of the Longhouse.” More than 1000 years ago it was here that the Peacemaker, Hiawantha and the Tadadaho came together, through the help of Jigonsaseh, a woman, to establish what has been translated into English as “The Great Law of Peace.” This is an ancient ceremonial process and social protocol, which helps orient human beings into respectful relationships with all beings, human and otherwise, who inhabit the natural world.”
