Ganondagan (Seneca Nation of Indians)

75 Native corn growers from the Northeast gathered at Ganondagan Historical Site to discuss the healing nature of working with our sister, corn. Our responsibilities to her heal us emotionally, physically, spiritually, and mentally. She heals us again when we give thanks to her, and once more when she nourishes us. A youth contingent in attendance reminded us of their interest in learning and continuing our cultural traditions.
