The Great Tree of Peace Teachings – Unit 3 – Unit Description

In this unit students will be introduced to the Great Tree of Peace and examine how it functions as a teaching/learning tool. This unit helps fill the gap that exists in studies related to Aboriginal peoples, in particular, where the study of Haudenosaunee or Iroquois peoples is concerned. This unit is not all-inclusive, but focuses on who the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois are, what they value and believe, and how their society is structured to live in harmony with others and with the environment. These teachings are designed to guide and help Aboriginal peoples to cope with and survive through the influence of change in today's world.
