Two Row Wampum treaty
The Two Row Wampum treaty, also known as Guswhenta or Kaswhenta, is an agreement made between representatives of the Five Nations of the Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) and representatives of the Dutch government in 1613 in what is now upstate New York. The treaty is considered by the Haudenosaunee to be the basis of all of their subsequent treaties with European and North American governments, including the Covenant Chain treaty with the British in 1677 and the Treaty of Canandaigua with the United States in 1794.


Kaha:wi Dance Theatre's Iroquoian Creation Story
The journey begins as a wondrous Sky World is revealed and Sky Beings dance like stars in the cosmos. It is when Sky Woman falls through the roots of the Celestial Tree to the Water World below that life on Turtles back takes shape. Animals by her side, Sky Woman sings and dances her world into existence. Composer Donald Quan has created an exquisite musical score that successfully blends traditional Iroquoian social songs and contemporary music, incorporating both Mohawk and Cayuga languages. Storyteller weaves the story with narration written by acclaimed Ojibway playwright Drew Hayden Taylor. Visually stunning, musically rich and theatrically compelling, this spectacular dance work for families and school-age children is entertaining and insightful.
