Ganondagan State Historic Site





Join Into the ROC to learn about one of the nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Onöndowa'ga:' (Seneca in English) at the Ganondagan State Historic Site. Participants will get the opportunity to respectfully learn more about local indigenous culture through winter games and exploration of museum and grounds.

Ganondagan State Historic Site is located in Victor, NY. It is a National Historic Landmark, the only New York State Historic Site dedicated to a Native American theme, and the only Seneca town developed and interpreted in the United States. Spanning 569 acres, Ganondagan (ga┬ÀNON┬Àda┬Àgan) is the original site of a 17th century Seneca town that existed there peacefully more than 350 years ago. The culture, art, agriculture, and government of the Seneca people influenced our modern understanding of equality, democratic government, women's rights, ecology and natural foods.

The newly built Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganondagan State Historic Site is a 17,300-square-foot center that tells the story of Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) contributions to art, culture, and society.

The bus will leave the Sentinel Statue promptly at 12:15pm.
