  • The Great Peace…the Gathering of Good Minds (K01047), 1999, Working World New Media, Junior Audience. Contains: 1 Resource Guide & 1 CD-ROM this CD-ROM is based on the three panel artwork (a triptych) that Raymond created to express the images in his dream. Raymond states, "As the artwork started to evolve, I began to realize that all the images within the theme had a specific story to tell - stories of history, stories of culture, stories of spirituality and values. As the images took shape it was clear that this told the story of the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy." The triptych is entitled, The Great Peace...The Gathering of Good Minds, from which the CD-ROM received its title. The artwork is used as the main menu for the Great Peace Interactive Journey section on the CD-ROM.
