November is Native American Heritage Month, and the University has taken action in its commitment to diversity.
On Oct. 30, 20 students, along with the Director of Religious and Spiritual Life Reverend Allison Stokes and the Director of Diversity Enhancement Joe Latimer, gathered in front of the Interfaith Chapel for a free 20 minute bus trip to the Ganondagan State Historic Site in Ontario County.
Over 300 years ago, the 245-acre National Historic Landmark was one of the largest Seneca towns in the Haudenosaunee (also referred to as Iroquois) territory.
In 1966, the site was reconstructed and preserved for landmark status, including remodeled Longhouses and furniture made from the same material that traditional Iroquois people used.
