The Haudenosaunee are a confederacy of six nations, three of which reside close to Binghamton in Central and Upstate New York: Oneida, Cayuga, and Onondaga. As sovereign nations, they impact, interact with, and influence their neighboring communities. The relationship between indigenous nations is examined both on part of the Haudenosaunee but also through outside communities' treatment of their cultures, histories, and sovereignty. Through Haudenosaunee existence and efforts of placemaking, tension is created with the United States government in relation to legal cases such as land rights claims and environmental activism. With this research, places like New York and Binghamton are viewed with a scope that encompasses aspects of social, economic, and political factors of local Haudenosaunee nations.
