From 1957 to 1962 the Seneca Nation and allies to our Seneca people lobbied Congress to prevent Kinzua Dam from being constructed.
On behalf of our Seneca people, President Seneca addressed Congress and the American public in an effort to bring awareness and national support for the alternative dam proposal.
Letters like this would have been sent out to our Seneca people and to the American public to share updated information and bring awareness to the legal action being taken by the Seneca Nation.
