Jack Manno, Associate Professor, Department of Environmental Studies, will be presenting “What do Indian Treaties have to do with Sustainability?”, on Thursday, November 20th from 12:00 noon -1:00 pm in 110 Moon Library. In 2013 the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy commemorated the 400th anniversary of the first agreement with representatives of European explorers and traders, the Dutch in 1613. ESF’s Professor Jack Manno was the education outreach coordinator for the hundreds of paddlers in a flotilla; Native Americans and non-Native allies traveling in canoes and kayaks over thirteen days down the Hudson River to the United Nations in NYC. The project was known as the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign and was featured in the ESF magazine last fall. Professor Manno has also taught courses at ESF for more than twenty years on the concepts and principles of sustainable development. What do treaties with Indigenous Peoples have to do with Sustainability? Come and discover. Professor Manno will show a half hour documentary on the flotilla event followed by a discussion on Indigenous values and sustainability.
