While the current US administration wages war on women, organizers at the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse look back at the influence Indigenous women had on the American women's pursuit of equality. This week the programming continues with a lecture, "The Role of Haudenosaunee Women and Suffrage," with Jeanne Shenandoah (Eel Clan, Onondaga Nation) and historian Sally Roesch Wagner. The talk is held in conjunction with Ganondagan's Seneca Art & Culture Center's ongoing exhibit, "Hodinöhsö:ni' Women: From the Time of Creation."
"The Role of Haudenosaunee Women and Suffrage" takes place on Sunday, October 7, 2 to 4 p.m. at Sonnenberg Gardens, 151 Charlotte Street, Cananadaigua. The gate fee to the gardens is $7. farmingtonmeetinghouse.org.
