The White Pine, symbol of the Great Peace between the Iroquois Nations, once dominated the Eastern Woodlands. Among its names are the World Tree, the Great Earth Tree, the Tree of Peace, the Celestial Tree and the Evergrowing Tree. It was thought to stand at the center of the world, bearing the sun and the moon aloft in its branches. Its great white roots were believed to penetrate down to the Great Turtle upon whose back the Earth rests.
