Native American Student Association will host a social featuring the Allegany River Dancers on Thursday, November 20, at 7:00pm in Emerson Suites. DINNER IS PROVIDED!

The Allegany River Indian Dancers are a Native American dance group that showcases the traditional songs and dances of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Indians. The general performances incorporate many aspects of Native American culture.

The Seneca language and culture pertaining to the origin of the songs and dances are shared in the program narratives. All performers wear traditional Native American regalia. All the music is performed live and the show is as educational as it is entertaining.  

One highlight of the show is the Iroquois Smoke Dance, a very fast contest dance. Also featured is the Hoop Dance, a beautiful story telling dance in which the dancer uses hoops to make various designs and shapes to represent birds, animals and themes from nature.
