J.C. High Eagle and World Youth Day WORLD'S FIRST INTERNATIONAL SITE FOR PEACE. As a true visionary, the world's first international site for peace, the Circle of Unity [click], came from a vision several months prior
during his lone prayer quest in the awesome Black Hills of the state of South Dakota.

Additionally, in 1986 after the site was dedicated, High Eagle had a vision of celebration for all world youth. The vision that came to him ultimately manifested in World Youth Day. High Eagle assembled a committee comprised of Boy Scouts International, Girl Scouts, other youth groups and churches to support the concept and vision of first time in history to celebrate and honor world youth. The task grew way beyond High Eagle's committee to handle. It was suggested to the Catholic Church headquarters which mentioned it to the Pope. The Catholic Church and Pope embraced it, and it has occurred every year since 1986.

Unfortunately, the Catholic Church limited the scope of the day to just Catholic youth which was not the original intention of High Eagle's vision for all world youth. High Eagle never sought any glory for the origination of the Day, but the Catholic Church and Pope have erroneously been credited for it. High Eagle's vision of World Youth Day came directly from God, and he feels he was of service to God to bear the fruit of the vision. To him, it does not matter who gets the credit. Truly, the credit belongs to God, for that is where the inspiration came originally . . .
