The Summer Solstice Indigenous Festival at Mādahòkì Farm kicked off on Friday with a full schedule of events to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day.

The free event, which ran from Friday to Sunday, offered activities, games and performances highlighting Indigenous culture. A competition pow wow was taking place on the farm at the same time, welcoming drummers and dancers from across North America.

The calendar of events for National Indigenous Peoples Day was packed. It included performances by throat singers and world champion hoop dancer Scott Sinquah, workshops on quillwork and dreamcatchers, storytelling, a glow in the dark evening pow wow and a “family fun zone” with games and a mechanical bull named Jed.
