To support the development at the New-York Historical Society of Leading Nations: Gayë́twahgeh and Sagoyewatha (working title), a collection-based exhibition shaped by Haudenosaunee history and culture bearers that focuses on two celebrated eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century leaders of the Seneca Nation—Gayë́twahgeh (Cornplanter) and Sagoyewatha (Red Jacket)—and uses renowned portraits of these men as a starting point to explore a multivocal, cross-cultural history of these Indigenous leaders and the early North American visual and material culture of diplomacy in which they engaged.
