Solemn agreements were renewed between the United States of America and the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations of Indians). U.S.A. Representative Congresswoman Louise Slaughter conveyed a message, by letter from the President, William Jefferson Clinton, acknowledging this momentous commemoration of the treaty. The Tododaho, Chief Leon Shenandoah responded with his hopes that this treaty will endure for years to come.
