Nya:Weh Indian Village Smoke Dance Competition

Date: Aug 17, 2019
Expected champions from all over the country participating in hopes of being this year’s Nya:Weh Indian Village Champion. Saturday’s competition will feature contestants split between male and female categories. Each contestant will wear his/her beautiful handmade, colorful Traditional Iroquois regalia while competing for cash prizes in their perspective age category. Visitors will enjoy watching the dancers keep their feet in time with the fast beat of the water drum. The competition will consist of two (2) rounds, 2:00 pm- 7:00 pm. Judges will score the dancers on a point system. The dancer accumulating the most points will be declared the winner. Continue the celebration of Indian Day with a special featuring our Tiny Tots-Dancing on the Turtle Mound at 5:00 pm.
