Native American Dance & Music Festival

25th Annual 

Native American Dance & Music Festival

July 23 & 24, 2016 - 10am - 6pm

Celebrate the 25th annual Native American Dance & Music Festival, Saturday-Sunday, July 23-24, 2016, 10am - 6pm.  Nowhere else in the area can you experience the incredible diversity of our living Native American culture. 

​Featured performers are singer-songwriter Darryl Tonemah, (Kiowa/Comanche/Tuscarora) with his band, and the Zuni Olla Maidens. 

Tonemah is a singer/songwriter whose  performances combine the energy of rock, the intelligence of folk and the heart of country, to create a musical niche he calls, “Native Americana.” Influenced by the Eagles, Steve Earle, Dave Matthews and James Taylor. Tonemah retains a deep connection with his roots and a gift for intimate storytelling that has become his trademark.

The Zuni Olla Maidens are a group of women who travel throughout the U.S. and Canada promoting the beauty and culture of the women of Zuni. When the Zuni Olla Maidens are dressed to dance — each member of the group has a piece of pottery resting on her head as she performs. The Zuni Olla Maidens first formed 88 years ago, and various incarnations have continued on since.

You’ll also find our ever-popular Iroquois Social Dancers, traditional hoop dancers, fascinating Native American Arts Market, Native foods, Iroquois storytelling, guided trail and longhouse tours, and much more. Don’t miss new hands- on fun in the Family Discovery Tent.
