The purpose of the ceremony — which will be led by Diane Schenandoah, Honwadiyenawa’sek (“One who helps them”) of Syracuse University — is to welcome all incoming and returning students, faculty, and staff of Syracuse University for the 2023-2024 academic year, and for all to show their respect for the indigenous people on whose ancestral lands Syracuse University now stands.
We hope to see you there! YAW^KO (Thank you!)
We will have jugs of water available, please bring your own reusable water bottle to fill up!
