About Friends of Ganondagan

The Friends of Ganondagan, is a not for profit, 501c. (3) Corporation created in 1989 as a private educational partner to Ganondagan State Historic Site.

Located in Victor, New York, Ganondagan is the only New York State Historic Site dedicated to Native Americans, in particular the Seneca and Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people, and the only Seneca town developed and interpreted in the United States. Ganondagan is the internationally recognized resource for Haudenosaunee history, culture, and living traditions that express universal ideals of peace, cooperation, and respect for each other, and the natural world.

Friends of Ganondagan provides cultural programming and community events to enrich the understanding of Seneca and Haudenosaunee values, culture, and contemporary life. In 2012, heirloom, White Corn returned to Ganondagan in the form of the White Corn Project, reflecting the persistence of the Haudenosaunee people, the complexity of their culture, and their enormous contributions to contemporary life.
