Snow Snake Creation and Racing

December 28, 2022 December 30, 2022

Snow Snake is a traditional Haudenosaunee game played during the winter.  The object of the game is to throw your Snow Snake (a straight tree branch) the farthest along a smooth trough made in the snow.  Snow Snakes come in various lengths and designs.

Five Rivers Snow Snake sessions will demonstrate how to prepare the branch for racing by removing twigs, debarking, sanding, decorating, and waxing.  You will head home with a branch, sand paper, and wax to use in completing your own unique Snow Snake by Race Day.
