Young and old can explore the lives and culture of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people through their art, stories, and objects during this fun-filled day on the shore of beautiful Otsego Lake.
Throughout the day experience cooking demonstrations, the story of wampum in the Mohawk Bark House, potato stamping and splint basketry demonstrations, the story of Sky Woman’s fall from the sky world, and visit the Seneca Log House to hear the stories of the Haudenosaunee people. You can even go inside the Museum to explore the Thaw Collection of American Indian Art.
