SPORTS | Native American Winter Games 

Why have a regular snowball fight when you can try your gloved hand at a game of snow snake? And why sit around with your fancy heating system when you can gather around a fire in a bark longhouse for storytelling? Experience the harsh Western New York winter as the Seneca people once did at the Ganondagan's 10th Annual Native American Winter Games and Sports, held on Saturday, February 23, at the Ganondagan State Historic Site (1488 State Route 444, Victor). From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., attendees can see and experience a variety of traditional Native American winter festivities, including craft making, dogsledding, snowshoe walks, and games of snow snake, a competitive throwing game that dates back several hundred years. Traditional favorites like Three Sisters harvest soup and roasted corn muffins and cookies will be available for purchase. The event is free, with a suggested donation of $3 per person and $10 per family. For more info and events, visit ganondagan.org.
