For Indigenous People’s Day, learn more about the history of the land on which you now live. Learn the story of how the ancestral lands of the Iroquois-speaking people came to grow from a turtle’s back. Create screenprints of this special turtle and imagine the indigenous tradition of the “Honorable Harvest,” then use dirt to create drawings that honor the history of the ancestral lands of the Iroquois-speaking people.

Registration is not required for the Family Art Project events, but visitors will need to reserve an admission ticket in advance online or by calling 718.549.3200 to visit Wave Hill for that day.

Shine only. Check the website the morning of for the status of the day’s program.
