Update: Native Nations Festival 2019
We are happy to announce that the forth annual Native Nations Festival (formerly the Falling Leaves Festival) is confirmed for September 21-22, 2019 at Watson Homestead in Painted Post, New York.
Friday, September 20, 2018 will be a free educational day when students attending local schools are invited to learn about Native American Culture. This educational day will feature a sacred fire, traditional dancing and drumming, demonstrations, and activities adapted specifically for kids. Please check with your local school to see if they will participate. Unfortunately, the public can not attend on the Educational day.
Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22, 2019 will be the main festival days open to the public. The Native Nations Festival (including parking) is free, since SGS relies on donations to put on our programming. The Native Nations Festival will open with a traditional ceremony and feature a sacred fire; traditional dancing, drumming, and music; Native American vendors, food for purchase, and demonstrations.
SGS relies on donations and volunteers at each level of the organization for all our events. As a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit in New York, we invest all the money we receive into our programming and materials, never to pay staff or directors. If you support our mission of developing awareness and education about Native American culture, or if you enjoyed any of our events, consider volunteering or making a donation. Every bit helps and we sincerely appreciate you. Thank you in advance!
