Presented by the First Voice Interpreters of Ganondagan, this workshop will give attendees a deeper understanding of the Hodinöhsö:ni’ Confederacy and the formation of the Six Nations League of the Iroquois. Clan systems, social life, stereotypes and current issues will be discussed.
Ganondagan State Historic Site located in Victor, NY is a National Historic Landmark, the only New York State Historic Site dedicated to a Native American theme (1987), and the only Seneca town developed and interpreted in the United States. Spanning 569 acres, Ganondagan (ga·NON·da·gan) is the original site of a 17th century Seneca town, that existed there peacefully more than 350 years ago. The culture, art, agriculture, and government of the Seneca people influenced our modern understanding of equality, democratic government, women’s rights, ecology and natural foods.
The workshop will begin promptly at 10am; System Announcements will follow.
