Join Jessica Martin (Gayogo̱hó:nǫʔ/Cayuga Nation) in a discussion on the importance of “Ganędagǫ:” in the Gayogo̱hó:nǫʔ language, the status of the language, and community-based efforts to promote language learning and revitalization. Martin, as a scholar and teacher of the Gayogo̱hó:nǫʔ language, will delve into the linguistic and symbolic significance of “Ganędagǫ:” and its particular salience in the Cornell context, as well as the role of place-names in language revitalization. In 2021, Cornell received permission from the Gayogo̱hó:nǫʔ community to bestow this name on one of its residence halls, Ganędagǫ: Hall. Come and learn about the importance of Cornell’s newest residence hall!

A limited number of complementary copies of the book, The Gayogo̱hó:nǫˀ People in the Cayuga Lake Region: A Brief History, will be signed by the author, Associate Professor and AIISP Director Kurt Jordan.
 
Jessica Martin is Wolf Clan Gayogo̱hó:nǫʔ from Oswe:gęʔ (Six Nations of the Grand River). She is currently in her second semester of teaching the Gayogo̱hó:nǫʔ language at Cornell.
