Celebrate Native American Heritage Month at HVCC with Music and Dance Nov 7th


All are welcome to celebrate Native American Heritage Month and learn more about American Indian history, culture and traditions on Thursday, Nov. 7 when the Piscataway Nation Singers & Dancers perform at Hudson Valley Community College. The free event is noon to 1 p.m. in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium on the Troy campus.

Mark Tayac and the Piscataway Nation Singers & Dancers carry on the long‐standing traditions and culture of their indigenous ancestors. The troupe travels from the Tayac Territory in Port Tobacco, MD with its colorful, educational and entertaining pow wow‐style program of American Indian dance, drum and song. The Piscataway Nation Singers & Dancers also appear frequently on the History and Discovery channels, and perform regularly at the Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC and at major Native American festivals throughout
the United States.

Successors of the Algonquin peoples, members of the Piscataway Nation were the first Native Americans to encounter Captain John Smith along the Potomac River in 1608.

No advance tickets are needed to attend the Piscataway Nation Singers & Dancers performance. The program is free to the public and is presented by the college’s Cultural Affairs Program.
