Join us for refreshments and conversation at the unveiling for the NEW Haudenosaunee Gallery, to be located in The Rockwell’s third-floor permanent collection galleries. This unique celebration will include a welcome blessing and a special performance by the Allegany River Dancers starting at 6:00 p.m.
Haudenosaunee, which translates to The People of the Longhouse, refers to the six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy – Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Tuscarora, and Mohawk. This new permanent gallery will feature a blend of art and objects of material culture of different Nations, from pre-contact tools to 19th-century clothes, toys, dolls, and baskets, as well as contemporary fine art.
