Haudenosaunee Days

Haudenosaunee Days

Saturday, Nov. 10: 11am–3pm
Included in Museum Admission

Celebrate Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) culture — past and present — with artisans from the community. Learn first-hand about the tradition of making cornhusk dolls, jewelry, bead work, and baskets from local Haudenosaunee artists as they bring the traditions of their culture to life through their art. Hear storytellers (at 11:30am and 1:30pm) and join RMSC educators to learn more through the Museum’s world-renowned collection.

With staff and volunteers, get an up-close view of artifacts rarely on display for the public, including art from the Works Progress Administration (WPA) Indian Arts Project. Immerse yourself in the vibrant art and culture of today’s Haudenosaunee nations.

This program is sponsored by the New York State Council of the Arts (NYSCA) and a Humanities New York Vision/Action Grant.
