In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit the Onöhsagwë:de’ Cultural Center in Upstate New York, a sprawling museum dedicated to the Seneca-Iroquois Nation. There we learn about “The Creator’s Game”–which evolved into the sport now known as lacrosse–and the Onödowá’ga peoples’ constant fight to be recognized.
Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
