Ganondagan's annual Native American Winter Games and Sports will take place on Saturday, February 27. The event features traditional winter activities such as snow snake, snowshoeing, dog-sled demos, storytelling, winter artisan demonstrations, and children's activities. This year, organizers debut a new feature, snow boats, which entails racing wooden boats downhill through channels in the snow. Visitors can also check out the longhouse, make and take home a bird feeder, and purchase Iroquois White Corn inspired food.
The family-friendly festival will take place 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is free and open to the public, including admission to the Seneca Art & Culture Center (there is a suggested donation of $10 per family). The event will take place whether or not there's snow on the ground. For more information, call 742-1690, or visit ganondagan.org.
