Lafayette Schools staff learn about Two Row
Jake Edwards and Andy Mager spoke today to the staff of the Lafayette School District about the Two Row Wampum, its history and the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign. The over 150 teachers, assistants, administrators, janitors, social workers and other staff listened attentively to a brief version of the Traditional Thanksgiving Address and learned about the Great Law of Peace, the Two Row and the Canandaigua Treaty.
Lafayette is the school district in which most children from the Onondaga Nation attend school. The Onondaga Nation School, an elementary school which includes Onondaga language teaching, is part of the school district. Many of those in attendance expressed appreciation for the presentation and a desire to find ways to share this information with their students and community.
