Haudenosaunee-Native American Studies Research Group

Sadly, we acknowledge the passing of one of the co-founders of the Haudenosaunee-Native American Studies Research Group, Barry White. It is in memory of Barry, and in gratitude for all that he has done for us, that we dedicate the following Calendar of Events. Nya:weh Barry, we will miss you.

Comprised of Indigenous and non-Indigenous allied faculty and graduate student scholars from across disciplines at UB, this research group provides a forum for discussion of recent academic work in the ever-emerging interdisciplinary field of Indigenous studies. The primary rationale for this workshop’s Haudenosaunee-specific focus corresponds with maintaining respectful recognition of UB’s location within the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee people.
