Every May during the 2 week session Service Learning in Native America is offered (ANTH 14500) where students learn about Native culture, help out, and even visit with buffalo on the Onondaga Nation. Contact Brooke Hansen for info ( During summer 2013, Jack Rossen will offer an archaeological field school where students can develop a variety of professional skills and learn more about the Haudenosaunee homeland and their current struggles for controlling their own cultural patrimony.
