Utica, N.Y. – Storytelling is an important component of Haudenosaunee culture. Oral traditions and legends have been passed from generation to generation, teaching their communities how to live, act, and care for one another, as well as how to manage during the unpredictable seasons. Join Jessica Farmer to listen to her version of a few of these ageless stories and legends, and learn about their meaning and significance.
