Join us on Syracuse University’s Quad on Indigenous Peoples’ Day for the unveiling of Onondaga Artist Brandon Lazore’s installation.

Through the leadership of Indigenous Students at Syracuse, the Native Student Program, Onkwehonwe Alumni Association, and Haudenosaunee/Indigenous Alumni Representatives, and with support from the Onondaga Nation and Syracuse University, Onondaga artist Brandon “Ganyada•kda” Lazore was commissioned to create a public artwork. 

All are invited to the Kenneth B. Shaw Quadrangle of Syracuse University for the unveiling of Gayaneñhsä•ʔgo•nah (“The Great Law of Peace”) by Onondaga Artist Brandon “Ganyada•kda” Lazore.

Onondaga is the central fire of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy (“People of the Longhouse”), which is comprised of six nations—Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, and Tuscarora. The Confederacy was founded under the Great Law of Peace over 1,000 years ago at Onondaga Lake.

By honoring the Onondaga Nation and its past, present, and future on these lands, this new public artwork is intended to invite reflection and action that fosters meaningful and accountable relationships and opportunities that extend to all.
