Every year, the public is invited to join representatives of the Haudenosaunee community to walk from Canandaigua Primary School to the Courthouse to commemorate the Canandaigua Treaty of 1794, which brought peace between the United States and the Six Nations, and recognized the sovereignty of those nations.

The Canandaigua Treaty is a seminal, Federal treaty between the United States and the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy - Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk and Tuscarora. It was signed in Canandaigua, New York on November 11, 1794, and will be on display at the Ontario County Historical Museum from 10am - 4:30. Celebrate the anniversary of this 1794 Treaty with a parade and ceremony in front of the Ontario County Court House.
