American Indian Community House Social Gathering

Sat, Feb 17, 2024
12–4 pm

Floor 3, Theater

Join us for a day of drum singing, dancing in traditional regalia, conversation, and sharing stories at this Social Gathering presented by the Whitney in collaboration with the American Indian Community House (AICH).

AICH has hosted Socials as integral community-building events since its founding in 1969. Akin to a small powwow, the Social is an extension of a long-standing lifeway among Indigenous people that brings relations and friends from different tribal nations together. AICH Socials solidify bonds among Indigenous people living in the New York City area who are often far from their original homelands but also welcome new friendships with guests from diverse communities. In this spirit, AICH has partnered with many organizations and institutions throughout its history to make a truly inclusive experience.


Two Indigenous drum groups will provide music for the evening. Silvercloud is the premier drum group in New York City and performed at the 2019 Social at the Whitney.

Traditional Dancing

Attendees will be encouraged to dance and wear regalia to highlight the many different styles of dancing and dress.

American Indian Community House is a Whitney Education Community Partner.

The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
