Hosted by the Redhawk Native American Arts Council, the annual Gateway to Nations NYC Native American Heritage Celebration will be held June 5& 6 from 11AM to 7PM at Aviator Sports Complex in Floyd Bennett Field in the Brooklyn Gateway National Recreation area.
June 4 will be a student day at the festival - see details to register school groups at http://www.redhawkcouncil.org.
In the style of many "pow wows", the festival will feature grand entrances of the many dancing competitors in several dancing styles - southern straight, grass, fancy, and jingle dress, and the dancing competitions themselves are always fun to hear and watch as they feature live music and amazing dancers. A "birds of prey" demonstration is promised. In addition there will be many vendors selling their crafts, and food vendors will be there as well.
Admission is $12 for adults, $7 for children and seniors, with children 6 and under getting in free.
