The Iroquois Confederacy, established in the 1400s, united warring nations and established peace in fertile glaciated valleys and mountains of upstate New York. Learn about the legacy of this remarkable culture as you meet members of the Iroquois community and embark on field trips to important sites in Iroquois history. Journey to Ganondagan State Historic Site for presentations by Iroquois educators on their history and culture, and gain a new perspective on Iroquois influences in American representational governance and environmental stewardship.


Highlights

• Learn about the influence of Iroquois Clan mothers on the women's suffrage movement during field trips to the Seneca Falls Women's Rights National Historic Park and Ganondagan State Historic Site in Victor, NY.
• Meet two members of the Seneca Hawk Clan for an in-depth look into traditional music, storytelling and history, plus a native forester's perspective.
• Enjoy excursions to the Rockwell Museum of Western Art and Corning Museum of Glass.

Activity Notes

Walking during field trips, short hikes. Standing up to one hour at a time.
