SYRACUSE, N.Y.-- The Indian Village is always a very unique stop on the west end of the fairgrounds.

Members of the Six Nations have been working on a number of arts and crafts which people can find and purchase there.

There are also daily tribal dances on the Turtle Mound at 11 a.m., 4 a.m., and 7 p.m. each day.

The soup kitchen is also open every day with some unique food.

Participants said the Indian Village is simply a great place to get away from the rest of the fairgrounds.

"We like nature in general, so we have a lot of trees here, so people can sit down and relax, especially if it's a hot day out there. And, of course, we want them to come into our cook house and taste some of our food. Our traditional corn soup, our traditional fried bread, so, come on down if they can," said Seneca Nation member Mary Jacobs.

The village is of course is represented by all Six Nations including the Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga, Mohawk, Seneca, and Tuscarora nations.
