Event Details

Celebrate American Indian Culture through music and dance! Among many
Native American tribes, it is a tradition to celebrate and give thanks
in autumn for the bountiful summer harvest. Autumn Dance Celebration
showcases a variety of Native American dances outdoors at Queens Farm
performed by representatives of eight Indian Nations. The dancers will
perform in full regalia and each dance’s origins are explained. This
event also features a Native American Craft & Food Market with
authentic art, jewelry, ceramics, textiles, and more.

In autumn,
the bountiful summer harvest is celebrated and thanks is given through
song and dance, reflecting a reverence and appreciation for the
wonderful things we find in nature.

The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers
are the oldest resident Native American dance company in New York. The
troupe was founded in 1963 by a group of ten Native American men and
women, all New Yorkers, who were descended from Mohawk, Hopi, Winnebago
and San Blas tribes. The founders were “first generation,” meaning that
their parents had been born on reservations. They founded the troupe to
keep alive the traditions, songs and dances they had learned from their
parents, and added to their repertoire from other Native Americans
living in New York. The Thunderbirds pledged to help preserve and
perpetuate the culture and traditions of the American Indian people
through their songs and dances, and ceremonies and to bring before the
general public a more realistic picture and greater understanding of the
American Indian people. Members share a commitment to raising
scholarships for young American Indian students.
