Whose Land? Community-Based History Project on Land Justice
At the Oneida Nation with Professor James Levy
November 4-6, 2022

Shaarei Shamayim members are invited to spend a weekend at the Oneida Nation with the Whose Land? Project. We will be supporting Oneida Nation archivists, museum staff, and cultural leaders who will be reviewing, processing, and organizing archival material recently donated to the Nation. This effort is part of a major reorganization of cultural programs and historical materials at Oneida, an effort that will likely become an important model for Indigenous nations across the country.
