A True Gem in New York’s Southern Tier
Embedded in the rolling hills and forested valleys of beautiful Salamanca is the great history of the Seneca Nation of Indians. Since before recorded history, the Seneca Nation has lived in harmony with nature and the diverse wildlife that inhabits this region. Today, guests are invited to come and discover this cultural heritage and share in the legacy that is uniquely Seneca!
As the only US city almost wholly located on a Native American territory there are many opportunities to experience both traditional and contemporary Seneca life. In addition to the fantastic exhibits at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum, visitors can learn more about the native culture at lively events such as the Fall Festival in Irving, NY. The Fall Festival includes a parade, art show, vendors, artist demonstrations, traditional dancing, sporting events, traditional foods and much more.
The Native Roots Artists Guild brings you the rich culture for which Native American Artists are known at the 35th Annual Falling Leaves Festival in Salamanca, NY on September 29 and 30. Welcome in the autumn season in the foothills of the Allegany Mountains and enjoy traditional and contemporary arts and crafts produced by Native American artists. View stunning interpretations of ancient potters, hand carvings, paintings, beadwork designs or view the symbolism captured from traditional native stories and legends. The festival will showcase the treasures of the Native Roots Artists Guild. Guild members will be demonstrating: carvings; basket making; story telling; and traditional dance from the Allegany River Indian Dancers. Visitors will be in awe of their creations as they take part in this celebration!
