Six Nations work opposing Hydrofracking

The work of honoring the Two Row continues. Here is a recent video that includes Onondaga Hickory Edwards, whom many of us met padding on the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers this past summer. It reminds again that Native peoples are not gone. They are here today. Their cosmology has something to offer all of us; we do not to be a Native person to respect, understand and maybe even embrace the message here.

Neighboring Faiths starts tomorrow!

TomorrowFeb. 9, the Neighboring Faiths class for 6th and 7th graders will kick-off with a presentation and slide show about the ancient civilizations and religions that developed and overlapped in the land that is now modern Turkey. Marta Ozisik will share slides and anecdotes from her family's travels to Istanbul, Ankara, Cappadocia and Ephesus.

These slides show some of the famous "fairy chimneys" and cave churches in Cappadocia where early Christians, fleeing Roman persecution, lived and hid.
