Sparta in Sussex County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Princess White Deer
"Greetings. Ten years ago on this very spot, I invoked the Great Spirit to look kindly upon the efforts of those who brought about this colony. I asked the sun to shine brightly, the rain to fall gently, and the breezes to blow coolly. Ten years ago, I said 'May there be many homes in the woodland, and many canoes upon the waters." I asked that your race might find health and happiness here, and that you might prosper. The Great Spirit was kind; he heard the voice of White Deer. The valley of my people is now the valley of your people, and your flag is now my flag. Therefore, I raise this emblem over Lake Mohawk, and ask again that you continue here in health and happiness, and that you enjoy great peace." From 1984 to 2011
