J.C. High Eagle is leading an expedition of U.S.
citizens on a mission of world peace to the center of the world. Mr. High Eagle,
Osage/Cherokee Indian spokesman, and his delegation, will celebrate with the
native Ecuadorian tribes, the first time an international site at the Equator
has been designated as a focal point for world peace and unity.

Calvary General George A. Custer in 1876, will preside in the Peace Pipe
Mayor Kathy Whitmire, Mayor of the City of Houston,
has given the group the Medallion of the City of Houston
to present to officials of Ecuador.
High Eagle says, “We
are proud for the Ecuadorians to recognize all of the people we have brought
from the U.S.A. to participate in these historic first
ceremonies. We have brought both Indians and non-Indians to show that we are
truly one people in all the world. Native people and white people can get along
with each other in a true spirit of friendship and cooperation. In this way, we
are all truly people-to-people . . . heart-to-heart.”
He continues to say, “What is happening in Ecuador
is not only for it or for native Indians, but for all of humanity. We have come
representing no government, no politics, and no religious motives. The only
thing we carry in our hearts is love. All of us should remember that it is our
spirits that create the world in which we live. To unify our world is to unity
