The goal of this project is to digitize and introduce archaeologically-recovered materials from two late 17th and early 18th century Seneca (Onöndowa'ga:') Haudenosaunee (Six Nations Iroquois) sites located near Geneva, New York into an online platform that will be meaningful for descendant communities as well as researchers in Anthropology, History, and American Indian and Indigenous Studies. It will provide information on archaeological materials from a poorly-understood era to researchers, serve as a resource for education on the indigenous history of New York, and most importantly provide a means for descendant communities to access and explore their heritage.
