Either. I have always thought of *roj*/make peace/ to mean something 
like *marojpu'*/we made peace (with each other)./ The word doesn't seem 
like something you do to someone else. Therefore, the facilitator of our 
making peace is a *rojmoHwI'.*

But if *roj*/make peace/ means to cause peace to come into existence, 
without necessarily implying that you were the one not at peace before, 
then *rojwI'* would work.
