General Info

Donna Silversmith (Cayuga) and Dan Hill (Cayuga) will give a presentation titled “Two Row Wampum From an Enactment Perspective.” This talk is part of a week of special educational events leading up to the annual Peachtown Native American Festival on Friday, September 20.

The presentation will focus on the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign enactment, which took place with paddlers starting at Onondaga and paddling down the Hudson River (The River That Runs Both Ways) to arrive at Manahattan and the United Nations for the anniversary of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The speakers will discuss the process of this journey from the perspective of how Native women and men and allies worked together to support each other on this amazing journey to commemorate the Two Row Wampum Treaty between the Haudenosaunee and Dutch settlers 400 years ago.

Light Refreshments at 1:30 and dialogue with Dan and Donna in Stratton Lobby.
