With the complex issues of cultural identity and assimilation never far from the headlines, the Friends of Ganondagan focuses this fall’s Native American Lecture Series on “Adoption and Adaptation.” The final of three lectures on Thursday, November 21 focuses on Adopting “Out”: Researching and Reclaiming Identity. The speakers are Ronnie Reitter (Seneca), Ganondagan Site interpreter and former foster child; and Jack T. Ericson, Native genealogy expert. Ms. Reitter will share her personal story about finding family, and Mr. Ericson will address resources and strategies for searching out one’s roots.
