The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers represent tribes from the southwest of Arizona to the northwest of New York State, whose performances and workshops support scholarships for Native American students. Their dancing and drumming is spectacular, as are their hand-made traditional regalia for traditional dances like the Eagle Dance, Hoop Dance and Jingle Dance. The NYC-based group is giving a FREE performance, called a Dance Social, on Saturday, April 21st, at the National Museum of the American Indian, a branch of the Smithsonian, at One Bowling Green, at the northern edge of Battery Park. The Dance Social is at 7PM, to 10PM, including time after the dances to chat with members about their tribes, culture, and the student scholarship program.
