NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY
Ha'no:wa:h meaning "turtle" is a representation of "Mother Earth" . The hard shell of the turtle represents perseverance and protection and based on some Native American tribes, the turtle played a role in the "creation" story. Sam Campbell, majority owner, is part of the Cayuga Nation turtle clan.
After years in the construction industry, interfacing directly with oil, gas, and power generation as a safety professional, Sam shifted roles and began overseeing and operating a pallet manufacturing facility in upstate New York. Once production had
tripled rapidly and maintained positive, Sam was ready to create his own legacy and teamed up with a handful of experts from the pallet and packaging management industry to build Hanowah with the intention of giving customers a fresh look at their supply chain. With capabilities to service all industries across the board, Hanowah is the premier choice for your packaging and procurement solutions.
Sam Campbell was born and raised in western New York and has served on the Nation Council as the turtle clan representative. Western NY is rich with Native American culture and provided a huge contribution to some of the staples the United States had adapted as their own policies.
The Haudenosaunee (hoe-dee-no-SHOW-nee) Confederacy, being one of them, represents the five nations and their peace agreement for decision making. The five nations are the Seneca, the Cayuga, the Onondaga, the Oneida, and the Mohawk which all represent the longhouse. It is a political constitution and the basis of "The Great Law". The longhouse is a symbolization for each of the nations contributions to the great law for peace, protection, and decision making for the nations. Due to the structure, it is believed to be the first participatory democracy on earth and the model for the American Constitution.
All of the nations have different beliefs and images that set them apart from one another, but one main similarity among the tribes is their designated gustowahs. These are headdresses the men wear and each tribe has different feathers and placements of feathers on the top. Since the five nations are considered woodland peoples, they are curated with wood strips and then covered with eagle, hawk, pheasant, or turkey feathers.
