Since 1794 members of the Seneca Nation had lived on the Allegany Reservation and the adjacent Cornplanter Tract, lands covering some 30,000 acres in southwestern New York and northwestern Pennsylvania. The U.S .government pledged the land to the Senecas via the Treaty of Canandaigua, sachems and war chiefs and by the official agents of President George Washington — and affirmed by George Washington himself.

But a century and a half later, the U.S. government did indeed disturb the people residing thereon. The Army Corps of Engineers and John F Kennedy decided to build a flood-control and hydroelectric dam across the Allegheny River — one that would inundate one-third of the Senecas’ reservation. The government took control of the land via eminent domain. The construction of the Kinzua Dam had begun.

By 1965 the Senecas who resided outside of Warren Pennsylvania in the Allegheny National Forest  homes were bulldozed or burned, were removed to new villages on the New York side of the reservation. Cemeteries and religious sites were flooded and covered over by the reservoir — Lake Perfidy Betrayal, the Senecas mordantly called it.

The Kinzua Cigar Club has based its 2nd Cigar on the atrocity that befell the Seneca nation bestowed upon them by John F Kennedy and the UNited States government.
