Ganondagan Winter Games and Sports
Saturday, February 23, 2013
10 am - 4 pm
Ganondagan State Historic Site - Victor, NY

During the long harsh winters in Western New York, the Seneca people nestled in their bark longhouses to repair clothing, make tools and prepare for the spring, a "time of plenty" with regard to food, hunting and work to be done.

Despite the weather, the Seneca people did not hibernate indoors all winter. Many of the activities that traditionally occupied them outdoors during the winter months are still in practice today.

Ganondagan's Winter Games & Sports is a celebration in which everyone can discover the Seneca Ways of Winter by enjoying traditional Native American winter activities as a spectator or a participant! This event will feature...

Dog Sledding Demonstrations
Experience the thrill of watching a dog sled team racing across the snow.

Traditional Arts
View live demonstrations of crafts practiced by Native people during the winter season.

Snowsnake
Enjoy the rare chance to try your hand at the game of Snowsnake. For more about the Snowsnake, read: Snowsnake, a Haudenosaunee Sport Steeped in Tradition

Storytelling
Listen to traditional Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) tales in the warmth of Ganondagan's authentic bark longhouse.

Snowshoe
