The Indigenous Music & Arts Festival (formerly, the Native American Dance & Music Festival) will feature Soh Daiko Japanese Taiko Drummers, Freightrain and Iroquois Social Dancers. Not seen at Ganondagan since 2004, Soh Daiko, the traditional Japanese Taiko drumming group, returns with its dynamic blend of sound, movement, and rhythm that fuses Asian roots with Western flair. Making its Ganondagan debut is the Buffalo-based band, Freghtrain led by Robert “Freightrain” Parker (Seneca), bringing its unique blend of soul, funk, blues and roots. By popular demand, the Allegany River Dancers perform twice daily. Plus, master artisan demonstrations, storytelling, food, Native Arts Market, and raffle.

Admission to the festival is free with Friends of Ganondagan membership.
