CELEBRATING its 35th year

The Summer Nightly Indian Dances kicked off its 35th year of bringing Native American tribes to the area to share their rich traditional dances, songs, and colorful regalia. The season launched on Memorial Day and ends Labor Day, with dances beginning at 7 pm each night.

Each indigenous group performs ceremonial dances along with songs from their tribe. The audience then gets the opportunity to meet with the group after the show to take pictures and ask any questions they may have for the group.
