Please join us for an evening with internationally respected champion of human and environmental rights, Oren Lyons. Oren is a member of the Onondaga Council of Chiefs, and will speak on the The Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign and on issues that affect us all. The campaign is a statewide advocacy and educational project which seeks to achieve justice by polishing the chain of friendship established in the first treaty between the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) and Dutch immigrants in 1613. Environmental stewardship, peaceful co-existence, and dignity for first peoples are the core components of the campaign. A symbolic enactment of the ideas in the treaty, by Natives and Non-native allies, will take place on the Hudson River this summer from Albany to NYC, ending at The United Nations. Please consider taking part in this meaningful campaign.
