Tree of Peace
The purpose of planting and dedicating a new Tree of Peace is to help solidify the relationship between the Native American community and the university campus and students. The Tree represents a strong link to cultural continuity and peaceful, supportive, on-going relationships. The Tree will be a place where students and the community can reflect on their daily lives and enjoy its beauty and shade. Planting a new Tree will also help to correct the cultural wrong that was done when the original tree died after having been moved to build the parking garage. We were granted to the use of a culturally inappropriate tree.
