New Exhibit explores Haudenosaunee symbolism of the "Tree of Peace"

On display now through the end of July at Cornell Plantations Nevins Welcome Center, visit the exhibit "Ögwe ö:weh Consciousness as Peace," which focuses on the Haudenosaunee symbolism of “The Tree of Peace,” also known as the white pine (Pinus strobus), one of the oldest trees in North America.

The exhibit features a beaded tree titled, “Ganradaisgowah-Peace Tree” (shown here) by renowned Cayuga artist Samuel Thomas and a replica of the “Dust or The Ever-growing Tree” wampum, each the embodiment of Haudenosaunee “The Tree of Peace.”

This exhibit is a collaboration with Cornell University's American Indian Program.
