Seneca Clan Rocks
Western New York is the home of the Seneca Nation of Indians. Within the Senecas, there are 8 clans and each clan is represented by an animal with certain respected traits. “Clan Rocks” with descriptions of the clans are hidden throughout the resort. Kids in our Mountain Adventures program can go on a “Clan Hunt” where they explore the resort with their instructor in search of the secret Indian Clans. A map is provided and stickers representing the clans are placed at the location of each clan rock. Once all the clan rocks are found, the kids head to The Fort, hidden away in the woods of Tannenbaum, to find out how the clans all tie together. Not only is this a great mountain adventure where kids learn how to follow a trail map, but they also learn about Native American culture in our area.
