The white pine tree was the tree chosen by the Peacemaker as a symbol of the unity of the nations of the Haudenosaunee confederacy. Its needles which always grow in clusters of five are symbolic of the uniting of the nations. The white pine also has broad branches that can provide shelter and it is beneath the tree that the Peacemaker asked the Chiefs to join him.
Said to be a messenger to the Creator the eagle is the protector of peace. Placed atop the Tree of Peace it alerts members of the confederacy if danger approaches.
