The Land You're On

The Land You’re On: Acknowledging the Haudenosaunee investigates the original story of our area, insights on Onondaga ways of life, policies that changed history, and aspects of the culture of the native people who originally called it home. This limited podcast series is based on interviews and conversations with Indigenous community members and allies, providing the context and perspective needed to understand the complicated history of the land we’re on. The 12 part series is a production of Access Audio, a storytelling initiative of the Special Collections Research Center at the Syracuse University Libraries.

Produced by Brett Barry, Neal Powless, Bianca Caiella Breed, and Jim O'Connor.
