This place now knows as "Buckaloons" was once occupied by the Seneca Indians, one of the six Indian Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. Native American occupancy for the past 12,000 years has been established through archaeological evidence along with radiocarbon dating.
Buckaloons is now managed by the U.S. Forest Service who has established a strong working relationship with the current Seneca nation of Indians government for the preservation and protection of this area. We honor and cherish this location as a reminder of our heritage and hope these values are instilled upon all peoples in the Seneca tradition that all relationships and decision last seven generations into the future.
In commemoration and the United States of America, we respectfully fly the flags of each nation to honor our unique heritage and promising future.
