The Oneida County Historical Hall of Fame has named Oneida Revolutionary War veterans Han Yerry Tewahangarahken “He Who Takes Up the Snow Shoe” and his wife, Tyonajanegen (aka Two Kettles Together) to its 2020 inductee class along with two others.

This year’s inductees will be honored at the History Center’s annual Historical Hall of Fame and Living Legends Awards Ceremony – which will be virtual this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event will be hosted via Zoom on Thursday, November 12, 2020 starting at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $25.00 and should be purchased in advance through the History Center website
