Sharing the River of Life: The Two Row Wampum Treaty Renewal Campaign and Our Collective Future

When: Wed., March 13, 7 p.m. 2013

Onondaga chief and human and environmental rights leader Oren Lyons will speak on the The Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign, a statewide advocacy and educational project which seeks to achieve justice by polishing the chain of friendship established in the first treaty between the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) and Dutch immigrants in 1613. A symbolic enactment of the ideas in the treaty, by Natives and Non-native allies, will take place on the Hudson River this summer from Albany to NYC, ending at the United Nations.
