Study English abroad at EC Fredonia and experience the amazing culture western New York has to offer! Our area of the world is a unique blend of Americans and Native Americans. Western New York has a vibrant population of Seneca people. New York itself has six Nations: Seneca, Mohawk, Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga and Tuscarora. These nations were given reservations of land on which to live after being stripped of their native lands and resources when settlers arrived in the area. After many decades of turmoil, the Seneca Nation is now a treasured resource used for learning. (More info about New York Indian Reservations) Cultural Opportunities! This took the shape of a culture-sharing session with EC students and Native Seneca students in 7th and 8th grades. Students from China and Korea were greeted in Seneca by a lively group of teenagers from the reservation. We got to know the Seneca flag and learned a few words of Seneca. Then it was our turn! EC students shared facts about their countries and showed the Seneca students where China and Korea are on the world map. We challenged the Seneca students to a chopstick contest (after a quick tutorial!). It was a funny sight to watch those unfamiliar with chopsticks to pick up a gum ball. After an hour, EC and Native students were conversing, laughing and having a great (and authentic) time. This is but one reason to visit our beautiful corner of the world and experience the gorgeous scenery and interesting people.

July 4th was not a national holiday until 1941! Americans will eat 150 million hotdogs on this day. Four U.S. presidents were either born or died on July 4th. In 1777 Americans used lit candles to show their patriotism instead of fireworks (if your windowsills had no candles, it was certain you were loyal to Great Britain!).
