Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and join us for a weekend of live Native American drumming, singing and dancing. This year’s entertainment includes host drum “Youngblood Singers” from Shinnecock Indian Nation, NY, and guest drum “Black Bull Moose Singers” from the Anishnawbek Nation, Canada, Aztec Dancing by the Salinas Family from Mexico City, Katrina Fisher—Cree hoop dancer, and Iroquois Social Dancing performed by the Onyota’a:ka Dancers and Singers from upstate New York. This year’s Master of Ceremonies will feature David White Buffalo, Rosebud Sioux Tribe. Featured dancers will include head man Patrick Brooks (Tuscarora) and head woman Emelie Jeffries (Occaneechi-Saponi).

Premiering at the festival this year is Native American performing artist Bill Miller. Bill Miller is an award-winning Native American recording artist, performer, songwriter, activist, painter, and world-class native flute player. Over the entirety, Miller has produced over a dozen albums, received three GRAMMY® Awards, numerous Native American Music Awards & Association (NAMA) awards (including a “Lifetime Achievement” Award) and led Wisconsin’s La Crosse Symphony Orchestra. He is now touring in support of the history-making album release, Look Again To The Wind: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited, on which he performed the title track.

The festival includes activities for people of all ages, including: a children’s hand-on activity area where they can learn to make Native American style crafts such as dreamcatchers, cornhusk dolls, and Navajo sand painting, and help paint our Roasting Ears of Corn Festival mural. Other activities include face painting, pony rides, lifeskills demonstrations including Atlatl and Tomahawk throwing, flintknapping, primitive fire making, flutemaking, and Native Cooking demonstrations by Heart to Hearth; and artifact displays by the Indian Artifact Collectors Association of the Northeast; and Cree demonstrator Katrina Fisher will present her award-winning Plains teepee program.
