About the Event

The Sullivan-Clinton campaign, an attack on the Haudenosaunee by General George Washington 240 years ago, was the largest assault on Native nations in US history.

Panelists include Alyssa Mt. Pleasant (Historian and Scholar of Native American & Indigenous Studies, University of Buffalo), Andrea Lynn Smith (Professor of Anthropology, Lafayette College, Easton, PA), Jake Haiwhagai'i Edwards (Onondaga Nation, Eel Clan), and Robert Venables (Professor Emeritus, Cornell University).
