Drums Along the Hudson: A Native American Festival & Shad Fest
Sunday, Apr 30, 2006
11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Manhattan

Drums Along The Hudson celebrates the spirit of the drum that is the heart, culture and tradition of the Native American people. The event features a powerful get-together of mesmerizing drumming from around the world and includes intertribal social dances like the Round Dance, the Iroquois Smoke Dance, and the Jingle Dance. International foods, Native American crafts and artwork will be for sale.

Shad Fest celebrates the annual return of spawning shad to the Hudson River. Shad Planking demonstrations by Chris Letts of the Hudson River Foundation and free tastings are featured. "Planking " is a Native American cooking method taught to the European settlers. Shad, considered a delicacy, are the only fish that the D.E.C. permits to be commercially caught from the Hudson River because their life cycle allows them to remain PCB-free and, therefore, safe to eat.

Admission is free.

Location: Inwood Hill Park - on and around Gaelic Field - enter the park at Indian Road and 218th Street, three blocks west of Broadway
