This Saturday at 11:00 am, the Lower Falls Foundation will be hosting a special guest presenter from the Ganondagan State Historic Site.

The presentation will take place in Maplewood Park at the Casconchiagon site marker. After the talk we will be hiking to the site of a centuries old Seneca encampment!

Ganondagan is the site of a 17th century Seneca Village located in Victor, New York. Currently, this is the only New York State facility dedicated to Native American history. Their Native American Interpreters come from the Seneca, Mohawk and Washoe Paiute Nations.

Please join us for a presentation on the historical background of the Seneca and their connection to the formation of the U.S. Constitution. After the 45 minute presentation, we will take a guided hike to the site of a 500 year old Seneca fishing encampment called Casconchiagon.
