Event, October 16 & 17, Syracuse, NY: Finding Common Ground

The event is called, “Finding Common Ground: Indigenous and Western Approaches to Healing Our Land and Waters":
The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) will host a daylong teach-in Oct. 17 focused on melding indigenous and “western” approaches to environmental protection and restoration.
[ESF Associate Professor Jack Manno said] said Syracuse is an appropriate location for such a gathering because the region, specifically the shore of Onondaga Lake, is the birthplace of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy.
The event will be preceded by a presentation 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 16, at Syracuse Stage, and followed by another presentation at 7 p.m. the day of the teach-in. The teach-in will begin at 8:30 a.m.
At 4:30 p.m., Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai will speak at Hendricks Chapel on the Syracuse University campus. She was awarded the Nobel in 2004 for contributions to sustainable development, democracy and peace.
