First Person Interpretation of America’s True Story with G. Peter Jemison (Seneca, Heron Clan)

October 12, 2020

As a child growing up in Western New York, with Mohawk cousins, the history and world of native American culture always fascinated me. The story of the native peoples of America speak through many voices – music, art, culture – but all too often are missing from the landscape of museums and historic sites.

Today’s guest, G. Peter Jemison, is a renaissance figure in native culture, art, and heritage and also serves as the Historic Site Manager of Ganondagan State Historic Site, the location of a 17th-century Seneca town in Victor, NY.

On today’s PreserveCast, we will explore the rich history of the Iroquois and learn how their heritage continues in the present.
