Native American Theater

Thundering Waters Native American Dance Theatre


Witness the Native American Legend of the Thundering Waters at Niagara Falls. A Love Story for all ages. Nyaweh Sge:no’ Gagwegoh! Welcome to the land of the Great Iroquois Nations. Our Confederacy consists of Six Nations, the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Tuscarora and Seneca Nations also characterizing themselves as the “people of the longhouse”. These tribes across Upper New York state played a strategic role in the 17th and 18th centuries in the struggle between the French and British for mastery in of North America. Their history continues to be told in their legends, songs and dances. Join us as we tell the story of the saga “Thundering Waters” and the “Maid of the Mist”.

You will experience authentic Hoop, Eagle, Stick and War Dance coiled with Native American Drama while being entranced by the vocal art as the story is told through song with a blend of percussion (drums and rattles) and strong harmonious influences of wind instruments (flutes and whistles). Traditionally ceremonial song has great significance to the Native American cultural chiefly used to communicate with the supernatural with the intent to bring definite results such as bringing rain, or success in battle and of course celebration. Experience a part of history!
