Welcome to the Historical Marker Project
The Historical Markers Project is an ongoing NOON project with the support and collaboration of the Onondaga Nation and a group of consultants that includes academic scholars. The project aims to analyze historical markers in our region which are of significance to Haudenosaunee peoples. We aim to provide accurate, complete, and contextualized information related to relevant markers. Click to read more about the project, learn how to read markers, follow our progress or access more information.
The Onondaga Nation has called for a "healing between themselves and all others who live in this region that has been the homeland of the Onondaga Nation since the dawn of time."
They have a deeply rich living culture which dates back thousands of years Markers with misleading historical information on that culture make reconciliation and justice difficult. We hope that these "virtual" revisions will lead to understanding and changes in the consciousness of our community, as well as, on the ground.
The committee is in the process of researching markers and posting their results. To offer assistance, inquire about other aspects of the project, or suggest other markers after reviewing our list, contact NOON.
