a vision of peace

One night Aionwahta was awakened by a dream voice telling him to run (as depicted by Zoo Boy below). He couldn't hear anything alarming, but he listened to the voice and awakened his family and took them to hide in the woods (depicted by J above). He woke the others in the other longhouses too, but when they didn't hear anything, they chose to go back to sleep rather than going to hide. While hiding in the woods playing his medicine drum, Aionwahta had a vision of a great peace, where all the tribes would live together as if in one Longhouse. When he returned to their village in the morning, he discovered that the village had been raided during the night and many warriors lost. Everyone agreed that they were tired of all the fighting and that Aionwahta's plan for peace sounded like a good one.
