Onondaga Nation begins educational series

“Onondaga Land Rights and Our Common Future,” a series of educational programs sponsored by Syracuse University, State University's College of Environmantal Science and Forestry and several community organizations, will begin at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27 at Syracuse Stage.

The series provides an opportunity for Central New Yorkers to learn about the Onondaga Nation and their Land Rights Action in the coming year.

Programs will start with “The Nation in Our Midst: Onondaga History, Culture and Spirituality,” featuring Tadadaho Sid Hill and Clan Mother Audrey Shenandoah. Other presenters will include Onondagas and other Haudenosaunee people, scholars and community activists.

“We hope this series draws significant attendance from wide sectors of the Syracuse community,” noted InterReligious Council Director Jim Wiggins. “It is particularly important now for us to learn about the Onondaga Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the background to their claims for land and the specifics of the Onondaga Land Rights Action.”
