We helped to answer that question and more during today’s Genesee Trail Day event. Visitors could stop at any of the various stations set up throughout our own Genesee Trail to learn about the importance impact of animals in the daily lives of the Seneca Nation of the Iroquois, including eagles, hawks, bears, deer, wolves and more. Members of the Seneca Nation of the Iroquois belong to one of eight clans, each named for an animal that is believed to have special magical or spiritual attributes!
