CCE Essex is located on the traditional homelands of the Kanienʼkehá꞉ka (the Mohawk Nation). The Kanienʼkehá꞉ka are members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, an alliance of six sovereign nations with a historic and contemporary presence on this land.

The confederacy precedes the establishment of Cooperative Extension, Cornell University, New York State and the United States of America. We acknowledge the painful history of Kanienʼkehá꞉ka dispossession, and honor the ongoing connection of Kanienʼkehá꞉ka people, past and present, to these lands and waters.
