This month, The Catch features a story on the return of 1,000 acres to the Onondaga Nation.
Syracuse.com Climate Reporter Glenn Coin has been reporting on this historic transfer of land back to the Onondaga Nation. The move marks the first time that land has been returned directly to a tribal entity in the state of New York. The land transfer is part of a settlement involving Honeywell International, a company that polluted and is now helping to restore Onondaga Lake.
“This 1,000 acres that they now are getting is a tremendous start for them to regain some of their territory,” Coin said.
