First hour: Celebrating Native culture at the new Seneca Art and Culture Center

Second hour: The Available Parent

When we think of Native Americans, we tend to think of a past culture, not a vibrant and adaptive modern population. On October 24th, the Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganondagan will open to the public, a new year-round center that will showcase the past and the present. We'll preview the grand opening, and we'll explore the center's mission: telling the story of the Seneca and Haudenosaunee contributions to art, culture, and society for more than 2,000 years. Our guests:

Peter Jemison, Historic Site Manager, Gonandagan
Michael Galban, Ganondagan historian

In our second hour: Parents might find a frustrating challenge when they try to understand their teenagers. John Duffy's book attempts to bridge the lack of understanding, underscoring the need for parents to be available to their children. As Duffy says, a parent can be sitting next to a teenager and still not be really available to them. And when a child feels that distance, problems can worsen. Duffy is a guest this week of Pittsford PTSA. In studio:

John Duffy, author of The Available Parent
Trish Blake-Jones, Pittsford Mendon High School PTSA Chair
Jori Cincotta, Pittsford District PTSA co-president
