In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, Medaille College is hosting a presentation by Rick Hill exploring how the Great Law of Peace of the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations) influenced the Founding Fathers, Karl Marx and the Women’s Suffragette Movement. This presentation, sponsored by the Medaille College Office of Diversity and Inclusion, will examine how Indigenous thought and philosophy impacted the minds of these leaders of social change. “Did Our Modern Democracy Come From an Ancient Indigenous Culture?” is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, November 19, in the Lecture Hall. It is free and open to the public.

Hill is a member of the Beaver Clan of the Tuscarora Nation. He has been featured in several documentaries on the role of the Haudenosaunee in the War of 1812, and has curated exhibitions on art, culture and history.
