Video Available: Onondaga Nation Land Rights Action Goes International
On May 5, Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON) organized a public presentation for Central New Yorkers to hear from Onondaga Nation leaders and their legal counsel about the petition they filed in April to the Inter-American Human Rights Commission. Tadodaho Sid Hill, Clanmother Freida Jacques, General Counsel Joe Heath, Faithkeeper Oren Lyons and Chief Irving Powless, Jr. all spoke. You can watch the video here.

The Onondaga went to this international venue seeking the justice denied to them by the United States courts. For further details, see the Onondaga Nation website.
