Forgotten Founders: The Roots of Matriarchal Democracy in the Kittatinny (Endless Mountains)
At the Dietrich Theater in downtown Tunkhannock 
Saturday, June 24 at 11 a.m.
Presented by: Dr. Gere Reisinger
Admission: Free
Sponsored by: the Wyoming County Commissioners
During this presentation, Gere Resinger will describe the origins of Matriarchal Democracy in the territory that the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) referred to as Indian Paradise, which is the entire northeastern PA region. It was here that the beauty of paradise stimulated the good mind of peace like our national peace ground Camp David. The Miller Mountain area with its splendid view was a famous gathering spot for the 6 nations uniting in peace. The new Wyoming County Park, Seneca Trail Park, was where the council fire burned for these peace meeting between the Six Nations. The game of lacrosse was played to honor the creator and to inspire the ‘good mind’ of democracy. Council meetings always took place where the water was pure and the fields were open and wide for lacrosse. The Seneca Trail Park honors this great Haudenosaunee history of peace in the world. Reisinger will also share how this matriarchal democracy inspired Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to unite the thirteen colonies with the form of government we have today. Tickets are available at 570-836-1022 x3 and at the Dietrich’s ticket booth while they last.
