Who We Are

Chautauqua (pronounced Shuh – TAWK – wuh) is an Iroquois word, meaning either “two moccasins tied together”, “bag tied at the middle”, “where the fish are taken out” or “jumping fish.”‘

History

The Chautauqua tradition an adult education movement featuring lectures, plays, and musical performances; the word is also used for any single organization pursuing this activity.

The idea was originated in 1874 in Chautauqua, New York, which lends its name to the format, but was soon copied paralleled elsewhere.
