As the departure of Haudenosaunee paddlers (July 2) and symbolic enactment (July 27-August 9) rapidly approach, we are busily preparing for exciting progress–with this progress comes a growing list of needed supplies. Given our limited resources, we are calling for donations of office supplies, paddling/camping equipment, and other gear. Check out our Wish List and contact Aya Yamamoto (contact info below) to donate!

Keep your eye out for updates and ways to get involved!
