Leonardo DiCaprio won the Academy Award for Best Actor last weekend for his role in the film The Revenant. Last month, he also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for the same role. In both of his acceptance speeches, he mentioned how important it is to listen to the voices of indigenous peoples around the world, which have been ignored for far too long. The Ska nonh – Great Law of Peace Center, which opened in November in Liverpool, New York, is a place where the voice of the Haudenosaunee, the indigenous peoples that lived in and around Syracuse, NY, can be heard. Visitors will experience Haudenosaunee heritage, culture, and values as they have been passed down from generation to generation. The Haudenosaunee advocate a way of thinking that looks to the well being of those that will come after us a full seven generations into the future.
