Talking Animals and Medicine People: The Supernaturalism of the Upstate Iroquois One of the world's most impressive storytelling traditions is that of the six New York Iroquois nations.

These ancient traditions have parallels in 20th and 21st century paranormal report on their former territory. Join us for…

People of European descent took Native American land, but the land’s first tenants may still have a hold on the living. “Native Americans take supernatural possession of their dispossessors,” wrote Renee Bergland. Once the rest of us stopped slaughtering them, as folklorist Louis C. Jones observed, we started to supernaturalize them.

A Series of Presentations by Mason Winfield Three years of steady fighting soaked both sides of the Niagara in tragedy and left no part of the frontier untouched. Little wonder that a vivid folk-culture exists today, though it is little-known to the public. The heroes and heroines who raged and died in the Niagara war still figure among the region's ghosts. Mason Winfield's colorful keynote presentation brings them back for us in all their glory and serves as a lively…
