The Seneca Nation of Indians has a proud and rich history. We are the largest of six Native American nations comprising the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois Confederacy or Six Nations, a democratic government that pre-dates the United States Constitution.
We are known as the "Keeper of the Western Door," for the Seneca are the westernmost of the Six Nations. In the Seneca language we are also known as O-non-dowa-gah, (pronounced: Oh-n'own-dough-wahgah) or "Great Hill People."
Today, the Seneca Nation of Indians has a population of over 8,000 enrolled members. We are the fifth-largest employer in Western New York, creating thousands of new jobs and investing hundreds of millions of dollars to bolster the region's and New York State's economy.
We invite you to explore our website to learn about our rich culture and traditions, our diverse and strong sovereign economy and the quality of life that makes us proud to be Seneca.
Rickey L. Armstrong Sr., President, Seneca Nation of Indians
The Seneca Nation Transportation Safety Plan (SNTSP) “draft” has been completed and is available for public comment. A digital version of the SNTSP is available via Documents, or see below. Physical copies of the plan can be picked up in the Seneca Nation Department of Transportation in the Seneca Allegany Administration Building.
Join in on a day of fun and work with the crew and help plant the community farm! Breakfast and lunch provided for all volunteers. Please bring your feast bundle with reusable dishware, flatware, drinkware, napkins and towel for cleanup.
Also, the white bass distribution will take place at the pole barn behind the farmhouse during the community planting day. Seneca Nation members are invited to stop by and for some frozen fish fillets from Ohi:yo’. Fish will be first come, first served and while supplies last.
