Ohén:Ton Kariwatékwen – Traditional Conservation Through Gratitude

Loading Events

Thursday, February 22, 2024
7 to 8 p.m. EST

Join David Kanietakeron Fadden (Six Nations Iroquois Cultural Center) and Chris Jage (Adirondack Land Trust) to explore the Haudenosaunee relationship to the natural world through the lens of the Ohén:Ton Kariwatékwen, also referred to as the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address, and how that perspective can inform non-Native American ways of environmental conservation. Hear firsthand from Dave and Chris how they are applying this perspective to conserve more than 300 acres of forests while also providing a site for the cultural center’s planned expansion and opening new pathways for collaborative conservation.

We are grateful to Dak Bar, a valued Adirondack Land Trust business and community partner, for sponsoring this event.
