LeMoyne Elementary was host to an event to dedicate the school’s new mural, commissioned by Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation and painted by Brandon Lazore, Onondaga Nation Snipe Clan.
The mural celebrates the creation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy more than 1,000 years ago, living under the Great Law of Peace. The artist, as well as Onondaga Clanmother of the Turtle Clan Freida Jacques and Haudenosaunee leader Tadodaho Sidney Hill, will be present at the dedication.(Click on photo to enlarge)
“LeMoyne Elementary School has been a great partner in this effort to provide accurate, age appropriate information and artwork honoring the birth of democracy in our region and the original inhabitants of this area,” said Andy Mager of Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation.
