    When we landed we saw some Indians gathered around a tree sayingClick to view a larger version. something. We got a really wise and old person to translate, and he told us that they were saying, “Green Stick.” We thought they were saying that because the twigs were a bright green. There was also a bird eating its blue berries on it, a squirrel walking in it, and all of the same type of flower growing around it. The children loved it, because they could chew on the twigs. The adults liked it, because they could make teas and tonics out of its roots. All the symbols we chose were the different things around our tree, the Sassafras. That is why we chose it as our colony tree.
