Saturday, October 6th - Around the Table Conversations About Hodinöhsö:ni' Women

1 - 3 pm

Join Michelle Schenandoah (Oneida/Wolf Clan) and Neal Powless (Onondaga/Eel Clan) for a male/female discussion on the Hodinöhsö:ni' and Euro-American Women roles: spiritual, economic, social and political.

The two will have an open discussion on the spiritual, economic, social and political roles of Hodinöhsö:ni' and Euro-American Women from both a male and female perspective. A deeper understanding will be gained of the roles and responsibilities Hodinöhsö:ni’ women had historically and continue to have, and will expand on their important and collaborative relationship with men. Additionally, attendees will begin to understand the complexities contemporary Hodinöhsö:ni’ women face as they make a powerful difference within their cultural community and at the same time, make an impact on the community at large. Audience members will be a part of the discussion, having the ability to ask questions and engage in meaningful conversation with the speakers.

An Iroquois White Corn tasting will follow the discussion. Iroquois White Corn, a culturally significant, heirloom food, was once a sustaining food of the Seneca and Hodinöhsö:ni’ and was grown in abundance at Ganondagan, a vibrant agricultural community, until the late 17th century.
