Tree of Peace Unity Walk

Tree of Peace Unity Walk

We will plant 44 Trees of Peace (White Pine) in communities across Canada during the Tree of Peace Unity Walk. It will call by petition, the planting of a National Tree of Peace on Parliament Hill in Ottawa at the conclusion of the walk.

Dream-Vison of Deganawidah - the Peacemaker


The Tree of Peace Unity Walk, the dream-vision of the Deganawidah, the Peacemaker, came to me from the Vision Giver. The vision is to bring Canadian First Nation People’s and non-indigenous peoples of all walks of life together to walk hand-in-hand for the healing of our past and move forward, with respect and honour for each other. To be a peace nation and a model for the world.

We will plant 44 Trees of Peace (White Pine) in communities across Canada during the Tree of Peace Unity Walk, including a call for each provincial parliament to have a Tree of Peace planted on parliament grounds.

The Tree of Peace Unity Walk calls by petition, the planting of a National Tree of Peace on Parliament Hill in Ottawa at the conclusion of the walk.
