Quakers, Indigenous Peoples, & the Land

When: Fri., Nov. 9, 7:30 p.m. 2018
Quakers served as witnesses to the Canandaigua Treaty of 1794, polishing the chain of friendship between the Iroquois and Quakers that dates back to 1682. After briefly outlining how greed for land in Pennsylvania and New York strained this friendship historically, Mattie Schmitt and Mike Farrell, of the Rochester Friends Meeting, and Michelle Shenandoah, JD & LL.M. (Oneida-Wolf Clan, thought leader, writer and consultant), will lead a discussion of how we all can grow to be friends and allies of Indigenous peoples in the 21st century. Sponsored by 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse with support from New York Yearly Meeting Indian Affairs Committee, and by Rochester Friends Meeting.
