A symbolic enactment of the principles of the Two Row Wampum Treaty…
Two peoples traveling side-by-side down the river of life in peace and friendship is a centerpiece of the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign.
The Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign is an educational campaign to honor treaties with Native American Nations and Protect the Earth. It will mark the 400th anniversary of the first treaty between the Haudenosaunee (or Iroquois) and Europeans with events and activities throughout New York State in 2013. The campaign is being coordinated by Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON) / Syracuse Peace Council in partnership with the Onondaga Nation.
A focal point of the campaign will be a 13 day symbolic “enactment” of the treaty with Haudenosaunee and other native people paddling side-by-side with allies and supporters down the Hudson River from Albany to New York City from July 28 through August 9. We will be paddling in canoes and kayaks, with support from other vessels for safety. We will be stopping and camping at New York State Parks, town and village parks and other facilities along the route.
Initial application deadline is January 30
Please complete and send in your application if you want to consider joining us for some or all of the journey from Albany to New York City (July 28 – August 9, 2013). We welcome both experienced paddlers and people who are willing to learn, train and prepare to safely participate.
