Seneca Art & Culture Center Exhibits

The Seneca Art & Culture Center fulfills a vision of a permanent, year-round interpretive facility at Ganondagan telling the story of the Seneca and Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) contributions to art, culture and society for more than 2,000 years to the present day.

Our interactive, multi-media exhibit gallery presents the story of Ganondagan with changing exhibits about the Seneca and Haudenosaunee people through five centuries of artistic, cultural, and historical artifacts.

"Yöhso:s" Six Contemporary Haudenosaunee Painters

Opening on December 2nd, 2023, Yöhso:s is an exhibition of Six Contemporary Haudenosaunee Painters. We have chosen painting over other mediums to connect the present to the ancient relationship that Haudenosaunee people have had with painting and to glimpse the future of the medium.

The Iroquois Creation Story Film

A combination of live-action and animation, the Iroquois Creation Story is a 17-minute film based on the ancient and complex Iroquois Creation Story. There are many versions of the Creation Story; this artistic interpretation is based on the story told in 1899 by Chief John Arthur Gibson to J.N.B. Hewitt, and on the book, Iroquois Creation Story, translated by John Mohawk in 2005.
