Watch incredibly talented women and men compete for cash prizes for their best smoke dance, a traditional Haudenosaunee dance. It is derived from an old dance for giving thanks and sometimes during droughts to ask the creator and the grandfather thunders to replenish the earth. This exhibition dance is often highlighted at Haudenosaunee socials and festivals, and during public performances.
