On Memorial Day weekend, May 26–27, the Iroquois Cultural Festival spreads its wings on the expansive lakefront lawn of the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown. A remarkable gathering of Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) artisans, dancers, interpreters, and Native American scholars, this first-ever festival can’t be missed. Storytellers Perry Ground, Kay Olan, and Mike Tarbell reflect the importance of Iroquois oral tradition, in which stories are told to teach as well as provide enjoyment.
