Lake of betrayal
"Kinzua Dam was a flashpoint in history for the Seneca Nation of Indians. Completed in 1965, it created a reservoir that inundated vast tracts of their ancestral lands. This was in breach of the Canandaigua Treaty of 1794 signed by President George Washington which had guaranteed them their lands 'forever.' Set against a backdrop of a federal Indian termination policy, pork-barrel politics, and undisclosed plans for private hydropower, the Seneca fought the federal government and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to defend their sovereignty. Lake of Betrayal explores an untold story from American history about a one-sided battle pitting an impoverished Native American nation against some of the strongest political, social and commercial forces in the country"--Container.
