Neil Patterson, a citizen of the Tuscarora Nation, will describe how indigenous peoples have unique relationships with the lands and waters of what is now called New York State. This is a way of knowing that can serve as a guiding principle for the restoration of our shared planet. Patterson is Assistant Director of the Center for Native Peoples & the Environment at SUNY-ESF, located in Onondaga Territory. Event in auditorium is free; entrance fees apply for entry to the rest of the site. Co-sponsored by Friends of Ganondagan. Funded by a grant from Indian Affairs Committee, NY Yearly Meeting.
