Seneca-Iroquois National Museum
A dream of many Seneca Elders in the 1950s and 1960s was to see an educational facility built for younger Senecas to reaffirm traditions and beliefs. The Elders had reason to believe that the culture wasn't being carried forward or taught in Seneca homes. It was during this timeframe that the Kinzua Dam was being touted by the Army Corps of Engineers as a flood relief effort for Pittsburgh, PA.
The Seneca-Iroquois National Museum (SINM) was built as a testament to our Elders and Ancestors, and to preserve and accurately present our history and culture to those who want to know more about it. The SINM proudly celebrates thirty (30) years of service this year. Watch for information on special events this summer and fall.
The Museum offers exhibits on Seneca and Iroquois cultural ancesteral materials including, but not limited to beadwork, baskets, cornhusk objects, pottery, dress, tools, and artwork.
