    Join NYC Parks and Lotus Music and Dance for this annual Multicultural Celebration and Native American Festival.

    This is a free event featuring Native American, Japanese, Brazilian, Flamenco, and Korean dancers and drummers from around the world! The festival combines a celebration of Native American heritage, culture, and art with the diversity of New York City. Spanish, African, Brazilian, and Tibetan cultures will also be celebrated with food, music, and dancing. Activities include a Tree of Peace planting, international cuisine, Native American storytelling, a Pow Wow, crafts, and visits from Captain Planet.

    This year we will feature the iForest, an immersive sound installation composed by Pete M. Wyer. A unique experience featuring Grammy Award-winning choir “The Crossing”, each voice is individually recorded and played back across ancient woodlands. A work inspired by the Mohawk Thanksgiving address and sung in the Mohawk language.
