New Great Law of Peace Mural Created
NOON recently supported the creation of a new mural about the Great Law of Peace at LeMoyne Elementary School in Syracuse. NOON made arrangements with the school and funded the project.
Onondaga snipe clan artist Brandon Lazore developed the image and painted the mural on August 3-5, 2016. The project was initiated by Ieieia'taiéri Logan who saw the original Father LeMoyne mural and asked NOON to see if we could have it replaced with a more accurate and educational mural. NOON worked with LeMoyne Elementary School principal Jason Armstrong for nearly a year to bring this new piece to life.
The new mural depicts the founding gathering for the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, along the shore of Onondaga Lake. It includes Hiawentha and the Peacemaker, the Tadadaho and Jigonsaseh, along with other leaders.
An informational plaque will be added in the forest on the left side of the mural in the coming weeks. An unveiling event will be held in September after the school year begins.
