Winter Frolics At SUNY College Camp

Winter Fun, Frolics At

SUNY College Snow Days

Vassil Dubbe, right, watches after throwing his snow snake while Roger Longtoe, an Abenaki tribe member from Vermont, beats a drum and shouts “Let’s go, snake!” in the Abenaki language. The Winter Fun event, held this afternoon at SUNY Oneonta’s College Camp featured, among other activities, this “snow snake throw,” a game invented by the Abenaki Native American tribe where participants throw a smooth, pointed wooden pole through a narrow slide made in the snow and compete to see whose will go the farthest. The poles are called snow snakes” because they undulate like snakes as they slide. (Jennifer Hill/AllOTSEGO.c0m)
