Pow Wow Photo Gallery: New York City's Gateway to Nations
From June 1-3, the RedHawk Native American Arts Council once again brought three days of American Indian culture to the Big Apple. Floyd Bennet Field in Brooklyn was the home for what is becoming one of New York’s finest summer festivals, Gateway to Nations. Once a crucial New York City airport, Floyd Bennet Field is a part of the Gateway National Recreation Area. It was a weekend filled with pow wow dancing, drums, Native songs, educational programs, crafts, jewelry, and, of course, plenty of great food. The competition dancing included dance specials for fancy shawl, men’s Northern Traditional, Grass, Southern Straight, Smoke Dance and Golden Age for men and women.
Here, then, is photographic proof that Gateway to Nations has become an event those in the New York City area won't want to miss.
