The Seneca Nation provides valuable emergency services for its citizens. From fire protection to medical services to hazard planning, our teams utilize technology, problem solving and critical decision making to keep everyone in the community safe across all territory boundaries.

To address food security and sovereignty, the Seneca Nation developed Gakwi:yo:h Farms. The agricultural initiative produces healthy food, engages traditional food processing procedures and makes these foods available to our community members, from field to table. Our mission is to positively impact our people, contribute to healthier eating habits and change how we bring food into our homes.

The Allegany and Cattaraugus Community Center support the social, spiritual, cultural and physical well-being of our community while fostering healthy lifestyles through socialization, recreation, education and athletics. From fitness classes to summer programs, we strive to teach and live a healthy lifestyle for ourselves, our family and our friends.

The Seneca Nation has led a major economic transformation over the last 20 years. The Nation’s investments, including nearly $2 Billion to develop three world-class casinos and historic investments in facilities and services on its territories, have created a sustained energy and economic development wave whose benefits are felt by thousands of individuals, families and businesses across New York every day.

Seneca culture and heritage – like the Seneca people – have faced seemingly relentless attacks throughout history. If not for the strength and perseverance of the Seneca people, the Seneca culture, including their traditional language, could have been lost to time and erased forever. Instead, these important foundations of Seneca identity are once again beginning to thrive.

The path to growth and success is paved by education. Yet, nationwide, Native students have some of the lowest high school graduation rates. The Seneca Nation is committed to helping all generations of Senecas follow an educational path that leads to success in the classroom, helps them achieve their life and career goals, and prepares them for leadership and success within their chosen career, their community and their Nation. This all-encompassing focus creates multiple pathways and opportunities for the youngest children and families, school-age students, college and post-secondary students, and non-traditional students.

Access to quality healthcare services is a basic human need. It is also a pronounced challenge in Native communities. The Seneca Nation is committed to serving the health needs of its people, providing comprehensive services to all, from Elders to the youngest children, incorporating the traditional belief that physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being are all one.
