Chief Whatchamis had a plan to get his warriors to work together and live harmoniously. He called his medicine man to develop a potion and then sent his men in pairs to gather their ingredients as follows;
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh water

Mix in:
  • 6 pieces of moss from beside large tree
  • 3 dandelion leaves
  • 1 acorn shell
  • some milkweed
  • 2 clovers
  • 5 blades of grass
  • 1 wild violet
  • 10 pine or spruce needles
  • a piece of spider web
  • a small bit of bark
  • a maple key
Stir ten times with a feather.

Warriors then each put out one foot and pour solution over the pair of feet that they may walk harmoniously through the path of life. This may be repeated to bind several Indians to one another if wished
