The CCXVIIIth Anniversary of the Signing of the Treaty of Canadaigua

I was in attaendance with my family this past Sunday on the event described in this article — 218th Anniversary of Canandaigua Treaty.

"That treaty entails a recognition of the sovereignty of the people of the Six Nations, of our individual nations," said event coordinator Peter Jemison. "And, it recognizes that these territories were ours originally and that the only way these territories could be taken from us was by our consent and when and if we decide to do that, but we are dedicated to existing here as long as the earth is green and as long as the sun rises."
