The Two Row Campaign and Syracuse Cultural Workers have published a beautiful poster titled “How to be an Ally to Indigenous Peoples.” It features an Onondaga Gustoweh (ceremonial headdress) by Onondaga artist Josephine M. Cook. The wording was developed over many months by the Two Row Campaign, in conjunction with Syracuse Cultural Workers. The poster features important information to be shared far and wide. It’s a great addition to classrooms, community centers, schools and other venues, and makes for a great gift. The 12″ x 36″ poster is available for $15, and bookmarks and postcards are $1 each or 12 for $10. You can purchase them online or via phone, 800.949.5139, from Syracuse Cultural Workers
