General Info

As part of the leadup to Wells' Peachtown Native American Festival, special guests Andy Mager and Jake Edwards will give a presentation on the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 12 in the Art Exhibit Room of Macmillan Hall.

According to the Two Row website, the campaign is "a partnership between the Onondaga Nation and Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON), developing a broad alliance between the Haudenosaunee and their allies in New York and throughout the world. Our statewide advocacy and educational campaign seeks to achieve justice by 'polishing' the chain of friendship established in the first treaty between the Haudenosaunee and Dutch immigrants."
