On July 26 in Glen Oaks, Queens, New York, The Queens County Farm Museum played host for three days to the the 36th Annual Thunderbird American Indian Mid-Summer Pow Wow. Taking place in the museum’s apple orchard, groups from more than 40 Native American nations took part. The 47-acre farm dates back to 1697 and is the longest continuously farmed site in New York State. It includes historic buildings, a greenhouse complex, livestock, planting fields, an herb garden and a vineyard. Read our in-depth article on the event from Simon Moya-Smith here.  Take a look at these ten great images taken by Rick Maiman/Polaris.

Why are natives Americans called Indians yet no historical connection with India? I understand Columbus thought he had landed in India when he 'discovered' America. We now know better so why do we still call them Indians then?
