There are many ways to prevent infection and stop the spread. Whether you feel healthy or not- stay home, wash your hands often, and avoid close contact with people outside of your household (stay 6 feet apart).

Gakwi:yo:h Farms

The mission of Gakwi:yo:h Farms is to address food security and food sovereignty through community engagement and wellness by implementing a Haudenosaunee approach to agricultural practices. Our goal is to produce healthy food, employ quality food processing procedures and make these foods available to our community members, from field to table. The foundation of our mission rests on the ability to positively impact our people, to contribute to a conscious shift toward healthier eating habits and to change the way we bring food into our homes.

As an agriculture initiative, our goal is to reconnect to the philosophy of our ancestors and pledge to promote the relationship between our people, our lands and the foods we eat. Just as our people have always understood and respected the value of our traditional foods, we acknowledge the value placed on healthy food - especially our white corn, which is an inherent part of our culture. By honoring the value of each corn stalk, each ear of white corn and each individual kernel, we increase our understanding and appreciation for who we are, as a people. At the same time, Seneca Nation Agriculture Department will be open to state of the art practices, equipment and industry standards to achieve the highest productivity possible to make the greatest impact on the health and well-being of our members.
