Old Bridge Singers

Note: Old Bridge will not attend in 2022 because they have a host drum opportunity. They have been a part of the NNF since 2018 and they will truly be missed.

The Old Bridge Singers & Dancers come from the Ohi:yo’, or Allegany, Territory in Western New York. The Native American group travels and shares not only the songs and dances of the Haudenosaunee, but Western powwow singing as well. The group is named after three bridges on their territory that were flooded when the Kinzua Dam was built in the 1960s.

During their performance the group showcases and share earth songs, also referred to as social dances. These are songs and dances that the Haudenosaunee — also known as the Iroquois Confederacy — use to have fun and uplift the spirits of the people.
