2022 Festival of Fire & Ice and Haudenosaunee Songs & Stories Recap

We did it, ICG Community! With the help of your patience and support, the ICG Team presented our Festival of Fire & Ice and Haudenosaunee Songs & Stories to the Garden earlier this month.

Over 300 folks bundled up at home and in the Garden to celebrate winter and the triumphant return of our signature events!

We loved bringing a community event to each of you in a new way this year. Our hybrid model offered a shared experienced online and off; bringing traditional stories and songs of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, activities and crafts, fire dancing, and so much more to everyone. As ICG continues to grow as an inclusive organization, we’ll be holding events that follow a hybrid model whenever it’s possible, and better understanding best practices for accessibility, in order to bring these spectacular Garden delights to more families and children. We’re all so excited for what’s next!

You can still craft Fire & Ice Twirlers, Fire & Ice Tea Lanterns, and catch all of the incredible Haudenosaunee Songs & Stories, told and performed by Perry Ground, Bear Fox, Kay Olan, and Kelly Cullen.

If you have pictures of how you participated at home that we could share on our website or social media, please email them to our Communications Coordinator, Monique
