Rights and Recognition: The Haudenosaunee in the New Nation

Rights and Recognition: The Haudenosaunee in the New Nation In-Person

A Reading & Discussion series facilitated by Mario Castillo, Local History & Genealogy Division.

JOIN US for a reading and discussion series centered around historian Michael Leroy Oberg’s insightful book, Peacemakers: The Iroquois, the United States, and the Treaty of Canandaigua,1794.

Signed on November 11, 1794, the Treaty of Canandaigua is one of the oldest active treaties between the United States and sovereign Indian nations. It marked a significant agreement between the leaders of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and representatives of the United States, aiming to forge peace in Western New York in the aftermath of the Revolutionary War. Oberg’s Peacemakers explores the intricate cultural diplomacy that shaped this treaty. A vivid storyteller, Oberg brings to life the complexities of this historic event which occurred right in our own back yard.

This program is perfect for history enthusiasts, students, educators, and anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of the enduring legacy of early American–Native American relations.
