Recent release “Gannentaha: The 17th Century French Jesuit Mission Ste. Marie among the Iroquois Haudenosaunee at Onondaga Lake” from Page Publishing author Jonathan Anderson presents a fascinating and eye-opening look at the Ste.

Long Description
Jonathan Anderson, a native of Central New York and an alumnus of Onondaga Community College and the State University of New York at Oswego, has completed his new book “Gannentaha: The 17th Century French Jesuit Mission Ste. Marie among the Iroquois Haudenosaunee at Onondaga Lake”: takes a look at the fascinating story and legacy surrounding the French mission in Iroquois territory attempted by the French.

Formerly, as a member of the Onondaga County (New York) Parks Department Office of Museums and Historic Sites, author Jonathan Anderson served as a member of the reconstruction team for the Seventeenth Century French Jesuit Mission historic site Ste. Marie de Gannentaha, “Ste. Marie Among the Iroquois,” located along Onondaga Lake, Liverpool, New York. Anderson contributed to the site’s living history program and served stints as an interpreter, historic site manager, volunteer chair of operations and interpretation, president of the Friends of Historic Onondaga Lake, and as a board member with the Onondaga Historical Association. The author also served a career with the Onondaga County sheriff’s office and retired as a lieutenant with thirty-five years of service. During that career, he acted as a historian for the sheriff’s office and authored published works related to law enforcement and correctional professional heritage.

“Seventeenth-century North America was truly a new world for both the European and indigenous First Nations native cultures that interfaced upon that spectacular wilderness theater,” shares Anderson. “For both the native people and the European, this stage forged new understandings from all things thought familiar to previous generations. Throughout this historical period were episodes that defined the era, episodes that captured the essence of the human spirit, and episodes that abase a work of fiction.

“One such episode that proved an epoch of the era was the 1656 French Jesuit mission embassy among the Haudenosaunee Iroquois. This was the mission Ste. Marie established in the heart of Iroquoia, at a place known and revered by the Iroquois for its spiritual and political significance— Gannentaha.”
