Rochester Museum and Science Center
Rochester, New York

To support Haudenosaunee Continuity, Innovation and Resilience at the Rochester Museum and Science Center (RMSC). The exhibition explores themes of Haudenosaunee cultural continuity and change, identity, and sovereignty through featured artists and artworks, both historical and contemporary. Envisioned and curated by Jamie Jacobs (Tonawanda Seneca, Turtle Clan), Rock Foundation collections manager, the exhibition reimagines a 2,200 square foot space on the museum’s second floor, where objects were deinstalled in early 2022 for the repatriation of cultural items back to their communities of origin. The project is a collaboration between nationals from numerous sovereign nations comprising the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the RMSC, and the Rock Foundation. The exhibition includes both written and spoken text in English, with the inclusion of some Seneca and Mohawk language.
