Join us for our 17th annual Native American Winter Games! Enjoy storytelling, traditional winter games, Iroquois Social dancing, and more! This family friendly event has something for everybody. FREE; donations gratefully accepted.

Try your hand at the competitive game of snowsnake, race small wooden snowboats (akin to Pinewood Derby), meet sled dogs and watch a dog sled demonstration, and learn how to use snowshoes.

Indoors at the Seneca Art & Culture Center, the Allegany River Dancers in colorful regalia will demonstrate their skill in Iroquois Social Dancing; Ganondagan staff will share winter storytelling; visitors will have the opportunity to win raffles, visit the Wampum Learning Center, watch the Iroquois Creation Story film, enjoy Iroquois White Corn inspired food for purchase (11 am – 2:30 pm), and more.

All activities are free and include complimentary admission to the Seneca Art & Culture Center. Suggested donation is $10/family, $5/individual. The event takes place with or without snow.
