I returned to this celebration of Native American culture. The American Indians are the original inhabitants of North America. The Shinnecock tribe is one of the thirteen original tribes of Long Island, New York, and every year they host an intertribal gathering, called a Pow Wow at their reservation. Tribes competed in dancing and drumming competitions during the Labor Day holiday weekend. There were also native American foods, crafts, clothing, jewelry, instruments and other items on display and for sale.
