Along with other Indigenous American leaders, Tadodaho is responsible for maintaining the history of the Haudenosaunee people. The position of Tadodaho is a lifetime appointment. According to tradition, when the previous Tadodaho dies, a council of chiefs from the Haudenosaunee chooses a leader from the Onondaga Nation.
In 2002, Sidney Hill was selected as the Tadodaho. He has been active in land claim cases in New York, by which the Iroquois nations have sought return or compensation for lands they were forced to cede to New York in the aftermath of the American Revolutionary War. The federal courts have upheld some land claim cases.
In 2005, Hill led a group from Onondaga Nation to file papers in United States federal court claiming land ownership over 4,000 square miles (10,000 km2) in Upstate New York. The e ownership assertion by the Onondaga Nation included land along Lake Ontario from the Thousand Islands through Syracuse, to the border of Pennsylvania, and including Onondaga Lake. Hill wanted to highlight the desire of his people to see Onondaga Lake restored to environmental health.
In May 2013, Tadodaho Hill sent a letter to several Iroquois communities in an effort to guide their relation to the Confederacy and its traditional principles.
The entire Haudenosaunee (Six Nations Confederacy) has 50 chiefs. The chiefs are all considered to have an equal voice. To show that they are leaders, the Peacemaker placed the antlers of the deer on the Gustoweh (headdress) of every Hoyane. When in council, every chief has an equal responsibility and equal say in the matters of the Haudenosaunee.
It is the responsibility of the chiefs to look forward seven generations to the future in making decisions. The chief titles originate from the original 50 leaders’ names from long ago. Each chief works with his Clan Mother and their clan. In council they are the voice of the people.
The Hoyane at the Onondaga Nation is divided into three separate benches. When an issue comes before the council, each bench of Hoyane all must agree before passing their decision to the next bench. When a decision by council has been passed, it comes with the backing of all three benches in agreement and is said that the chiefs are all “Of One Mind.”
Since 2003 Göran is General Secretary for Forum for Voluntary Social Work in Sweden. He was appointed as the 4th most influential leader within the Swedish CSR-community by reputed magazine ”CSR i Praktiken”.
