But before I could think some more, someone in a stone canoe came rowing by me. He wanted to talk but no words came out. He tried again and he said, “ Hiawatha, I know your feelings. I understand your behavior, but this war must stop!
“ He knows my name?” I wondered. Then after a few seconds, he said,
I am known as the Peacemaker and I have come for peace; but everyday I hear argument and see war! All this must stop!”
