It's Day 9 at the New York State Fair and that means it is both Native American Day and Students Day. Native Americans and students 16 and under can get into the fair for free. YNN's Brad Vivacqua has more from the Indian Village at the fairgrounds
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Indian Village at the fairgrounds is always a great place to visit on Native American Day. The village is made up of the six nations: Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk, and Tuscarora.
Everyone is encouraged to check out the village for some tribal dancing at 11:00 am, 4:00 pm, and 7:00 pm. There are also concerts at noon and at 8:00 pm. If live entertainment isn't your thing, the village is also a great place to look for crafts or grab a bite to eat.
"Educational programs here, native dancing, native foods. We talk about the establishment of the Indian Village back in the thirties, when Franklin Roosevelt declared this land to be maintained by the agricultural society so we share this knowledge, and we enjoy being together," said Norman Jimerson, the Native American Village Superintendent.
