Mission Statement

To honor and promote Haudenosaunee history and culture and to strengthen traditions through inspirational and transformational programming and other activities at Ganondagan with special emphasis on:

Encouraging respect and understanding between Native Americans and non-native Americans.

Collaborating with New York State, the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy and the local community to support and develop Ganondagan State Historic Site.

Extending values to the public that are alternatives to the popular culture.

Developing Native American youth and educating them in the wisdom of their elders.

Collaborating with other indigenous people of the world as well as with diverse religious and ethnic communities to promote the common values of peace, cooperation and respect for each other and the natural world.


Visit this site where thousands of Seneca lived 300 years ago, tour a full-size replica of a 17th-century Seneca Bark Longhouse, walk miles of self-guided trails, climb the mesa where a huge palisaded granary stored hundreds of thousands of bushels of corn, and learn about the destruction of Ganondagan, Town of Peace, in 1687. Also home to a 70 acre native warm-season grassland restoration.

I've done the invasive species cleanup at the park a couple of times now. I think this may be run by the NY state parks, but it's really great that they work with Friends of Ganondagan to promote the natural state of the park to rid and prevent invasive species. Whitney Carlton who runs the program is amazing as well. I recommend volunteering with the Friends of Ganondagan for anyone that is interested in the environment, and wants to be a steward of the earth.
