Visit the Iroquois Indian Village on Native American Day at the fair
Today is Native American Day at the fair, and I decided to make the trip to the Iroquois Indian Village. It’s a little bit off of the main path, between gates four and five.
It’s definitely worth making the effort to visit. When you enter the Iroquois Indian Village, you enter into a shaded area with several exhibits.
It's made up of six nations: Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk, and Tuscarora. Each has its own booth with jewelry, dream catchers, and other items for sale.
You can walk through an authentic Iroquois Longhouse, and other buildings house several crafts such as hand-woven baskets, quilts, and also produce.
Hungry fairgoers were lining up for lunch at the Six Nations Soup House.
Other people were trying their hand at archery, which looked fun!
There is also some entertainment in store for today at the Iroquois Indian Village. You can watch traditional dancing at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., and there will be a concert at 8 p.m.
