Glimpses of life in Queens long before it was given the name were on display last weekend when the 33rd annual Thunderbird American Indian Mid-Summer Pow-Wow was held over three days at the Queens County Farm Museum in Floral Park.

Dance competitions, chants, drum music and more provided the entertainment, as Indians in fantastic costumes like those of the peoples who first populated this island, which they called Pomonok, dazzled attendees.

Proceeds from the popular event benefit the museum and the Thunderbird Indian Scholarship Fund.

If you missed the spectacle, fear not. With all apologies to Paul Revere and the Raiders, Indian Nation will return — in just about a year or so, to Floral Park.
