YORKTOWN, N.Y. – On Tuesday, Nov. 20, the students at Yorktown Community Nursery School danced, whooped, made pots from clay and ground corn on stone as part of the school’s annual Native American Day.

A tradition at the school since 2000, the day is a celebration of the history and culture of the local Native American tribes that once inhabited the Yorktown area.
