The United States government made dozens treaties with native nations, and has broken them all. In the few decades, many of those nations have gone to court to demand enforcement or compensation for these violated treaties. Last year, the Onondaga Nation in Central New York State filed a groundbreaking land claim against the state of New York. Unlike other claims by native nations which sought monetary compensation or casino rights, the Onondaga are asserting their traditional role of earth stewardship to the seventh generation, as laid out in their Great Law of Peace, to heal their ancestral territories that have been devastated by industrial pollution Onondaga Land Rights & Our Common Future, is a year long series of educational programs sponsored by, Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON) a grassroots organization of Central New Yorkers which recognizes and supports the sovereignty of the traditional government of the Onondaga Nation.
Thanks to Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation
