The Haudenosaunee

The Haudenosaunee

Exhibit Workshop (Docent-Led) 

Discover the rich culture-past and present- of the Haudenosaunee (hoe-dee-no-SHOW-nee) people, more commonly known as the Iroquois Confederacy. Follow their story and discover the culture’s relationship with nature, the importance of clan structure, oral histories, The Great Law of Peace, and more as you compare and contrast the culture before and after contact with European’s. Discuss how the Haudenosaunee maintain their cultural identity across our community today. Each stop on this guided tour connects their story, from past to present, with hands-on objects.

**In-person capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit.
