Niagara River Iroquois Dancers at Museum Saturday

Written By Editor on 7/25/23 | 7/25/23

HOWES CAVE — Join The Niagara River Iroquois Dancers this Saturday (7/29/23) at the Iroquois Museum, 324 Caverns Rd, Howes Cave,

Hailing from Tuscarora Nation Territory, the Niagara River Iroquois Dancers troupe was established by Orville and Nina Greene in 1982.   The Greenes were taught by elders Huron Miller and Ron LaFrance and found that performing provided the opportunity to demonstrate a continued Haudenosaunee presence and to travel. Today the dancers are led by Nina and Orville’s son, Randy, and daughter Keeya.  Their obligation to Orville and Nina’s teachings and influence is acknowledged in the pride the group brings to each performance, in the time-consuming detail invested in their outfits, and in their commitment to dance as a method of cultural exchange.  Dances are approximately scheduled for 11 am and 2 pm.

These events are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature, a Humanities NY Action grant, and friends and members of the Iroquois Museum. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this exhibition do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information contact:
