On Saturday, Native American artists, performers and educators celebrated the ninth annual Gateway to Nations Native American Heritage Celebration at Floyd Bennett Field in Marine Park.

The event was produced by the Redhawk Indian Arts Council and featured The Aztec Fire Dancers (left). Others joined in for the "men’s fancy war dancing" (above) - spinning to a lightning-fast drumbeat.

The event brought together all generations of families in celebration of native culture.

Visitors enjoyed the live bird of prey exhibit, mechanical bull-riding contest, petting zoo and pony rides.
