New Yorkers invited to give thanks in authentic fashion

November 9, 2013 by  

Those who enjoy history and cultural activities may want to head to the Garvies Point Museum and Preserve for their annual Thanksgiving Native American Feast.

Guests will be able to participate in a variety of activities such as building fires with primitive means, face painting with natural paint and pigment, and making pottery. There will be authentic Native American food available, cooking done on site, and even a spear-throwing demonstration. Guests can also visit the various museum exhibits, which will be open as well, and those who enjoy movies will be able to watch Native American films that will be shown throughout the day.

The Garvies Point Museum and Preserve is the leading research center on Long Island geology and local Native American archeology. The museum offers multiple educational programs on these topics, and these are held during school hours for school groups to take advantage of.

The museum is likely to have to reach out to local brochure printers to maintain their supply. Organizers for this event may also reach out to printing companies for flyers and posters that they can use for advertising purposes.

The Thanksgiving Native American Feast will take place on Saturday, November 23 and Sunday, November 24. There is a $5 entry fee for all attendees over the age of five, and the event will run from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. The venue is located in Glen Cove, New York, which is not too far from Port Washington.
