Supporting the Seneca Nation

Known as “Keeper of the Western Door,” the Seneca Nation is at the western end of the six nations comprising the Haudenosaunee, or “People of the Longhouse,” a confederacy founded on peace and diplomacy.

The Seneca Nation holds five territories, three retained in the Canandaigua Treaty of 1794 and two reclaimed pursuant to the Seneca Nation Settlement Act of 1994. The Allegany and Cattaraugus Territories are home to nearly half of the 8000+ member Seneca population.

Staunch defenders of their lands and sovereignty, the Seneca Nation has persisted despite immeasurable losses. These include the loss of 10,000 acres in the 1960s construction of the Kinzua Dam by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Despite these obstacles, the Seneca Nation has built an economy and the means to provide for the health, education, and welfare of its people.

Now, the Seneca Nation seeks to invest in meaningful projects and businesses. Returns include partnerships, empowerment, and reinforcement of long-held traditional values.

Doing business with Seneca Solar directly supports the Seneca Nation. This video grounds our work in the concrete actions the Seneca Nation is taking to help its members, and the community benefits we are helping to create.
