New York City Native American Heritage Celebration

 Redhawk Native American Arts Council hosts its Gateway to Nations, NYC Native American Heritage Celebration held at Brooklyn’s Floyd Bennett Field. The celebration is the largest Native American gathering in New York City, gathering more than 1,000 Native American artists, performers and educators from all over the country.

The festival is alive with song, dance, drumming, food and art and crafts. Those crafts are displayed at more than 40 different artist's booths where their works of art will be on sale, as well as demonstrations on traditional artistic techniques, with special emphasis on Native American culture from the Nations in New York State.

From May 31 to June 2, the Redhawk Native American Arts Council once again brings three days of American Indian culture to the Big Apple.

Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn is again home for what is becoming one of New York’s finest summer festivals, Gateway to Nations. Once a crucial New York City airport, Floyd Bennett Field is a part of the National Park Service's Gateway National Recreation Area. It will be a weekend filled with pow wow dancing, drums, Native songs, educational programs, crafts, jewelry, and, of course, plenty of great food.
