Kanadaseaga (also spelled Kanatasaka and known as Seneca Castle), was a major village of the Seneca nation of the Iroquois Confederacy in west-central New York State, United States. It was located between the northern ends of Seneca Lake and Canandaigua Lake, west of the present-day city of Geneva, New York, in the township of Seneca. It was established at least as early as 1687.[1]

Long known for being one of the most powerful Iroquois towns, it was nonetheless destroyed during the Sullivan Expedition of 1779.
