RED JACKET AWARDS CEREMONY 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2022

The original Red Jacket medal is one of the most treasured artifacts in Western New York and was repatriated to the Seneca Nation from the Museum in May of 2021. The Red Jacket medal was presented by President George Washington to Seneca Chief Red Jacket (Sagoyewatha) in 1792, the medal bears symbolic imagery of the peaceful coexistence between the United States and Native Americans. The tradition of the Red Jacket Award is inspired by the imperative to continue acknowledging individuals who, through continued and devoted service, strive to support the connections in our region with our heritage.
