10th Annual Haudenosaunne Conference (“Sken:nen”) @ Syracuse Law School This Weekend

Here.The blurb:

The Haudenosaunee teach that peace is not the absence of war, but rather is an active striving towards universal justice. Today, the Haudenosaunee and many other indigenous peoples are striving to create their version of peace in a world that is often hostile to indigenous sovereignty, illustrated by the land claim legal battles, interference in border crossing rights, and the Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl case, to name just a few examples. Yet despite these constant battles indigenous peoples continue to strive for a society that creates peace or universal justice. The 10th Haudenosaunee conference brings together speakers and participants to discuss and share ideas about how they view peace and the means they use to achieve that peace.
