October 9, 2013 - Highlighted Project: Outreach Table Staffing


A critical (but easy) way to help NOON, is to join us in staffing our information table at events. The more people we have on the tabling team, the more events we can staff and the more outreach we can do.

You, yourself, might have stopped at one of our tables, signed up for this listserv and picked up some of our materials (many of which are free) – so you know how important tabling is.

To help with staffing a table you need to:

  • Be supportive of the traditional government of the Onondaga Nation and NOON’s work

  • Enjoy talking to people

  • Be available to volunteer 2-3 hours (a typical tabling shift) occasionally.

If you'd like to learn more, we are happy to provide an orientation and a partner to work with you (we always have 2 people). If you helped in the past, we invite you to come help again.

This summer/fall we have had tables at the Onondaga Craft Fair, Westcott Street Fair, Wooden Stick Lacrosse Expo and Imagining America Conference. We have had many great conversations with people and given out lots of literature. Coming up are the OCC crafts fair “Spirit of the Harvest”, Treaty Day at Canandagua, Plowshares Craft Fair and the December Craft Fair at the Onondaga Nation. We expect more events will come up as the fall progresses.

Additional benefits of staffing a table is that you get to participate in amazing events, meet many interesting people and learn. Tabling can be that extra incentive to get you to events you’d like to go to anyways!

Do you know of events that you think might be good venues for us? Please let us know. We are happy to do smaller events, as well as, the larger ones.

If you are interested and want to know more, please contact Paul Eiholzer at 315-243-4498315-243-4498  or paul@pauleiholzer.com.


Haudenosaunee Wooden Stick Lacrosse Expo - If you missed this event at Onondaga Lake Park, put it on your calendar for next year. It was very moving to see Lacross played on the shore of the lake and the event was blessed with sunny skies, as well as, wonderful attendance. Congratulations to everyone who planned and participated in a wonderful event.
