A story of love and healing: Native American tribes bond over Cazenovia wedding

Event ‘helps to heal the old wounds of the relationship between the Oneida and Onondaga Nations’

When Neal Powless and Michelle Schenandoah first met as young teenagers, they did not know they would fall in love or that, 27 years later, the deep historical connections between the Oneida and Onondaga Nations would be tied to their love affair. The children of prominent families of two different Iroquois tribes, their story is reminiscent of other star-crossed lovers from nearly 200 years ago from the same tribes, who died in the lake trying to run away together, and whose death has been the basis of legend ever since. The Powless-Schenandoah wedding and attendant ceremonies consecrated this past weekend on the shores of Cazenovia Lake have bridged this centuries-old tribal rift.
