Canandaigua Treaty and the Importance Treaties Carry
The Canandaigua Treaty was signed on November 11, 1794. It established peace and friendship between the young United States of America and the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. Ansley Jemison, Cultural Liaison at the Ganondagan State Historic Site, told correspondent Sina Basila Hickey that this celebration is an opportunity to educate people about this treaty (what it did well and how it failed), the overall importance of treaties, and the treaty’s impact on affected Indigenous communities.
