On Saturday, December 7, 2013, the Two Row Wampum Wampum Renewal Campaign is holding a Year End Celebration at Lafayette High School, 3122 Rt. 11, Lafayette, NY to mark a year of education and renewal of the Two Row Wampum Treaty. The event begins with a dinner at 6 pm, followed by a program and Haudenosaunee Social Dancing at 7 pm.  The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required for dinner, see www.HonorTheTwoRow.org or call 315-701-1592.

During 2013, nearly 70 educational events have been held as part of the Two Row Campaign, in addition to a paddling journey from the Onondaga Nation to New York City. Thousands of people attended presentations and over 500 participated in the canoe and kayak trek as paddlers or ground crew. The Two Row was welcomed across New York State by citizens and local elected leaders. The paddlers were welcomed to the United Nations by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Consul General of the Netherlands Rob de Vos joined in welcoming the paddlers to New York City. Most recently, U.S. Representative Dan Maffei shared the Two Row Wampum Treaty in the U.S. House of Representatives on November 19.

The Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign is a joint project between native and non-native peoples to raise awareness of the first treaty between the Haudenosaunee and European settlers, created 400 years ago this year.  It explains how to coexist together in peace and friendship, and the shared responsibility to take care of the environment.  The project was officially endorsed by the Haudenosaunee Grand Council of Chiefs in January, 2013 and involves people from all six Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) nations.  The Haudenosaunee are also known as the Iroquois Confederacy.  The campaign is co-sponsored by over 85 organizations statewide.
