Reclaiming Ohi:yo'- Restoring the Altered Landscape of the Beautiful River


For millennia, Ohi:yo'  flowed freely, providing life to a thriving ecosystem and to our Seneca people.The Seneca people have had a long relationship with Ohi:yo'. In our language, Ohi:yo' means "Beautiful River" or "Good River".

The river was an ideal habitat for a variety of marine life that we consider culturally important. Plants we know are good for medicine grew along its borders. We built our communities and way of life around Ohi:yo'

Today our Seneca people still live and have a relationship with Ohi:yo'Ohi:yo' is at the heart of our Allegany Territory.
