In recognition of the conclusion of Women's History Month, the Seneca Nation expresses profound gratitude for the mothers, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, and daughters who are the heart of our Nation. We honor their strength, wisdom, and resilience in this video highlighting some of the amazing women of the Seneca Nation. They continue to blaze trails, achieve great successes, and set a powerful example for all the women proudly following in their footsteps.
Public Meeting Notice for the Seneca Nation Long Range Transportation Plan and the Iroquois/Broad Roundabout project.
Part 1) Long Range Transportation Plan - 4/28 @ 5:00 PM
Part 2) Iroquois and Broad Roundabout Project - 4/28 @ 6:00 PM
PART 1: The Seneca DOT and Qk4 are currently finalizing a draft of the
Seneca Nation’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The 2021 LRTP is
intended as a tool to help lay out the Nation’s transportation vision over the
next 20+ years. The LRTP defines a set of goals to provide funding guidance
to improve the Nation’s transportation system and target funding towards
priorities that are needed most. The LRTP also identifies short- and longrange
transportation improvement strategies that will address current and
future transportation needs.
PART 2: The Seneca DOT and Qk4 are currently finalizing conceptual
layouts for the up and coming roundabout project that will take place at the
intersection of Iroquois Ave. and Broad Street (near Tim Horton’s) in the
City of Salamanca on the Allegany Territory. This project has been identified
as a safety priority to limit the frequency and severity of accidents at the
intersection as well as improve traffic flow.
These two meetings will be held in a virtual format and will be hosted by
representatives from Qk4 and DOT staff. Questions will be taken throughout
each presentation and will be answered following the presentation. If you'd
like more information on either project, or would like to view a copy of the
LRTP, please contact Ben Anderson at Benjamin.Anderson@sni.org.
The Seneca Nation Department of Transportation is looking for public input from everyone who uses the Seneca Transportation System (roads, trails, transit etc. on the Seneca Nation). Please follow the links on the flyer or below to take a short survey and check out the DRAFT 2021 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).
Council Co-Chair Presley Redeye, standing in for President Pagels, offers condolences for the passing of Andrew John. He provides updates about COVID cases and the Seneca Nation Health System now making appointments for enrolled Nation members, Seneca Nation Health System patients, and those eligible for services at the Health System over the age of 18.
The Seneca Nation Council is offering a second 30-day written public comment period for interested members to review the SENECA NATION HOMESCHOOL POLICY, which has been proposed for adoption.
This Policy would establish a Nation Homeschool Program for Seneca parents seeking to homeschool their Seneca child or children. The Nation Homeschool Program will establish a Nation Homeschool Coordinator who will oversee implementation of the Policy and coordinate with Seneca parents. Parents are wholly responsible for ensuring all requirements of the Policy are met each semester, including filing with the Nation Homeschool Coordinator: a notice of intent to homeschool, a homeschool plan for instruction, quarterly reports, and annual assessments. All documents provided by parents must meet the minimum requirements of the Nation Homeschool Policy.
Printed copies of the Seneca Nation Homeschool Policy are available at either of the Seneca Nation Clerk’s Offices and on the Seneca Nation website at sni.org. For Allegany residents, please send written comments to Bethany Johnson at BJohnson@sni.org. For Cattaraugus residents, please send written comments to Geraldine Huff at Geraldine.Huff@sni.org. Comments must be received by 4:00pm, Friday, April 23, 2021.
