Namesake


Red Jacket Red Jacket (1758-1830) was a Seneca Indian leader who lived in the Buffalo area. For thirty years following the American Revolution, Red Jacket was a prominent voice in Seneca politics in Western New York. He believed that the Senecas should hold on to the old ways and, as the spokesperson for the conservative faction at the Buffalo Creek Reservation, opposed any sale of lands to the British or the Americans. The rift between him and his uncle came to a head over the sale of land, specifically the strip of land along the Niagara River known as the Black Rock Corridor. The Buffalo Creek Reservation is back in the news currently with the development of a Seneca casino in south Buffalo.
