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 this one-sided battle pitting an impoverished Native American nation against some of the strongest political, social and commercial forces in the country. Caught in the middle were the Seneca’s non-Native neighbors whose towns and villages on the upper Allegheny would also be sacrificed for Kinzua Dam.
