Speakers Jeanne Shenandoah and Sally Roesch Wagner discussed the broad influence of Haudenosaunee Women on the development of the women's movement and other efforts to create greater equality among the people who came to these shores.

Jeanne Shenandoah describes the world she inhabits as a Haudenosaunee woman. The democratic governmental system, established long before Columbus and based on peace, provides equality for everyone with a balance of responsibilities between women and men based on a matrilineal clan system.

Sally Roesch Wagner explores how the woman's rights movement took form in the territory of the Haudenosaunee, along with all the other "radical reform" movements of the 19th century.


The program was part of the Onondaga Land Rights and our Common Future series held in Syracuse, NY, from February 2010 to February 2011 and coordinated by Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation.
