With regret, we see that in our haste to get malfunctioning registration software back online we cut and pasted an email announcement together in a way that invited misrepresentation. And we apologize for any culturally insensitive sentiments that may have arisen as a result this text.
For those not familiar with our programs, it might be reasonable to think the text was intended to portray Indigenous Peoples’ Day as the time to harvest plants and play hiding games as a way of depicting how Cayuga people inhabit the land they share with us. The Cayugas we know are in fact playful, plant-eating people! But with few exceptions, it is not ever our intention to suggest that our choice of activities reflect the specific traditions and lifeways of any indigenous group. When we do incorporate cultural sharing, we are diligent about identifying the source and context of the activity and, when appropriate, identifying lineage and/or permissions.

For those who were unaware of Columbus Day being (at least locally) renamed Indigenous Peoples’ Day, it may also have appeared that we named our program Indigenous Peoples’ Day. We could have perhaps been more clear about the holiday being different from the program.
We sincerely ally ourselves with others who challenge persistent stereotypes and systems of oppression, especially with respect to our Native brothers and sisters who wish to return to and reside on their ancestral homelands. It is our intention to honor and credit the inhabitance of the Cayugas who have been good stewards of this land continuously, for longer than we can know.
