Peace Ring
Peace Ring


 
A ring made in the spirit of Peace, the traditional symbol popular in the 60s. The Peace Ring crowned with the classic sign of Peace and flanked with "The Trail of Tears" droplets, ideals and cost of Peace making and commitment to making the future a better time to live and grow: creating a better way to live and love each other and never forgetting the cost of conflict.

In the early 1830s, nearly 125,000 Native Americans lived on millions of acres of land in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina and Florida–land their ancestors had occupied and cultivated for generations. White settlers were not interested in "civilizing" the native tribes (converting them to Christianity) and simply want them removed to grow cotton. White settlers burned their homes, stole their livestock and committed mass murder against these indigenous people.

By 1838, In spite of the States pushing to limit the sovereign nations of these people, the supreme Court judged: Worcester v. Georgia (1832). President Andrew Jackson refused to enforce the decision and allowed the States to enforce their Will against the Native Peoples. Before his Presidency, Jackson lead many campaigns against the the Native population and thus continued his Will by signing the Indian Removal Act in 1830. Ignoring the letter of the Law, in the winter of 1831, under threat of invasion by the U.S. Army, the Choctaw became the first nation to be expelled from its land altogether. They made the journey to Indian Territory on foot bound in chains and marched double file and without any food, supplies or other help from the government. Thousands of people died along the way. It was, one Choctaw leader told an Alabama newspaper, a “trail of tears and death.”

By 1838 they marched the Indians more than 1,200 miles to Indian Territory. Whooping cough, typhus, dysentery, cholera and starvation were epidemic along the way, more than 5,000 Cherokee died. By 1840, tens of thousands of Native Americans had been driven off of their land in the southeastern states and forced to move across the Mississippi to "Indian Territory".

The piece sign was first designed by Gerald Holtom for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in 1958. The vertical line in the center represents the flag semaphore signal for the letter D, and the downward lines on either side represent the semaphore signal for the letter N. "Disarm Now". This was this used by the Peace Movement of the 1960s and '70s.

This ring is dedicated to the acknowledgement of our faults and the realization of our potential of doing better. Setting aside the use of conflict and force to solve our problems and to turn to peaceful means to solve our problems. The Ring is flanked with the Tears of our troubled past and crowned with the symbol of Peace.
