Local residents and are given a tour of the Atunyote golf course and facility. They got a close up look at the Championship trophy which is a replica of a statue named “Allies in War, Partners in Peace.” Allies in War is a nearly 20 feet bronze statue which depicts the alliance between the U.S.A. and the Oneida Indian Nation. The Oneida’s fought alongside the American rebels in many of the battles in the Revolutionary War. In 1777 a band of Oneidas walked over 400 miles from the Central New York area to Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. They helped feed the starving soldiers and Polly Cooper, an Oneida women in the statue, taught the soldiers to cook corn beans and squash.

Oskanondonha, also known as Skenandoah, on the right of the statue, was the main negotiator for the Nation and the primary reason the Nation sided with the American rebels.

George Washington is also in the statue and he holds a two-row wampum belt and agreed that the Americans and Indians would not interfere in each others’ internal affairs after the alliance.
