On Nov. 28, professor of history Michael Oberg presented a lecture titled “What New York Students Should Learn, But Aren’t Taught, About the Iroquois.”  Oberg discussed Geneseo’s Native American studies program, saying, “We offer these courses not just as bait but because, in my view, the place of [American] Indians in New York state and the U.S. are major issues of public policy and governance. They are issues of law, justice and sovereignty.”

The proposed Finger Lakes Cultural and Natural History Museum will be located in Keuka Lake State Park. The concept originated in 2008 by John Adamski, architect, freelance writer, and wildlife photographer. Inspired by his visits to the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks in Tupper Lake, NY, also known as The Wild Center, and to the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, NY, Adamski envisioned the creation of a cultural and natural history museum of the Finger Lakes Region.
