This week’s featured image comes to us from the opening of the Skä Noñh-Great Law of Peace Center, where celebrations were held November 20 and 21.

Skä Noñh, which means peace and wellness in Onondaga, is meant to educate people about the Haudenosaunee and the Great Law of Peace, the founding constitution between the Six Nations. There are interactive displays, art, and cultural items all on display at Skä Noñh.

The opening was celebrated by the Native and non-Native community with food, dancing, artists, and an opening address with words from Oren Lyons, Onondaga Faith Keeper.
