SINM and the SNI community are excited to announce the Cornplanter exhibit opening August 3rd, 2024.

SINM was fortunate to accession a novel piece by artist Ken William’s Jr into the collection. Ken Williams Jr’s piece shares the same meaning around heritage as the overall ‘Cornplanter exhibit’ as noted in his words:

“The Piece I titled ‘Remembering Ancestors’ because it’s not just remembering our ancestor Cornplanter but it’s remembering our family, our people, our culture, and the ancestors that come before us and at one point we’re going to be the ancestors for our generations to come.”

Nya:wëh Ken for creating this piece that honors our community and ancestors.
