Seneca Art & Culture Center

Project Information

The Seneca Art and Culture Center at Ganondagan is a 17,000 SF visitor center devoted to the history and culture of the Seneca people. The Center is located on the Ganondagan State Historic Site in Victor, New York. The longhouse symbolizes the culture and values of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy formed when five warring nations came together in a mutually supportive union, agreeing to live together peacefully under an imaginary longhouse stretching from the home of the Seneca in the west to the home of the Mohawk in the east. This union is depicted on the Hiawatha Wampum belt. Its white horizontal line metaphorically connecting the five nations and extending infinitely in both directions.
