The award winning museum, Institute for American Indian Studies located in Washington Connecticut is hosting a Earth and Sea Clambake and Drumming fundraiser on September 17 at the River Walk Pavilion, 11a School Street in Washington Depot from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Notes-1

Participants of this event are invited to savor indigenous foods traditionally enjoyed by Native Americans such as: lobster, clams, corn, and potatoes amid a festive atmosphere.

A highlight of this event is the music and dances performed by Thunderbird American Indian Dancers. The troupe was founded in 1963 by a group of ten Native American men and women descended from Mohawk, Hopi, Winnebago and San Blas tribes. They founded the troupe to keep alive the traditions, songs, and dances they had learned from their parents, and added to their repertoire from other Native Americans living in New York and some who passed through.

Notes

Don’t forget to bring your own beverages, drums and rattles to join the fun. Reservations and prepayment to attend this event is required by September 13th.

The cost is $50 for adults; $40 IAIS members; and $10 Children 12 & under (hot dogs, chips & lemonade).
