Rochester's Rich History - Indigenous Land Rights in Western New York In-Person

Join us as we welcome author, professor, and founder of the Geneseo Center for Local and Municipal History, Michael Leroy Oberg. Oberg will dive into the intricate world of land rights as they pertain to Indigenous communities here in Western New York. If you have an interest in the Indigenous communities of Western New York this is the program for you!

In addition to his extensive list of published written works, Oberg has worked as a historical consultant for native communities in New York and North Carolina, as well as for the Indian Resources Section of the United States Department of Justice. A native of Ventura, California, Professor Oberg earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the California State University at Long Beach as well as his Ph.D. in 1994 from Syracuse University. Currently he teaches courses in Native American History, American Indian Law and Public Policy, and the history of the Iroquois at Geneseo for the Department of History.
