Colgate University is situated on the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee  --  known as the People of the Longhouse, or the Iroquois Confederacy (Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk, and Tuscarora nations).  In the Fall 2022 semester Colgate's Native American Studies Program is featuring contemporary expressions of Haudenosaunee life from the perspective of their experiences and expertise. All events are free and open to the public.  For everyone's safety, masks are required at all indoor events.

Peter B. Jones will provide a pottery demonstration and lecture, "The Revival of Haudenosaunee Pottery."   Jones, Onondaga Nation, Beaver Clan member, is a renowned potter and sculptor who resides on the Territory of the Seneca Nation of Indians.  His pottery, which is derived from traditional Iroquois construction, is admired and collected by community members, Native American art collectors, museums across the country, and internationally. Reminiscent of early Iroquois pottery, Jones’s art directly reflects the issues that impact the Haudenosaunee. 

Lunch will be provided.

Co-sponsored by Core Communities and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.
