Kathy Lynn and Joe Copeland will present a second program on “Cherokee Culture, Artifacts and Traditional Stories” at the regular monthly meeting Monday, November 16th, at 7:00 p.m. at the Quitman Public Library, 202 E. Goode St. in Quitman, Texas.
Members and the general public which is always invited to our meetings should feel free to bring friends and acquaintances.
Kathy is a Texas Touring Artist and was recently funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. Kathy’s husband Joe Copeland is now a big part of the presentation, and he has things to show of interest to everyone, also.
For display, they will be bringing their Pyramid Tent, the artifact exhibit, as well as the living history exhibit for life in the 1750’s-1800’s for the Cherokee. The latter does include household items, foods, medicinal herbs, etc, such as clothing, toys and games and more.
Kathy will be telling Traditional Cherokee Stories with her Story Table.
She will have a short PowerPoint presentation on culture and history. This PowerPoint presentation covers a brief history of the Cherokee before Joe and Kathy “shows and tells” about numerous artifacts that she brings along. Kathy then tells stories that delight all ages. She will have books she has written on the Cherokee Indians and will have Native American and Custom made Jewelry for sale after the meeting.
Prior to the meeting on the 16th, there will be Jewelry Party, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the library.
Some of the jewelry will be Genuine Turquoise and other natural stones unless otherwise identified. This party will not only include the ladies but the gentlemen are invited, too. There will be games, Prizes, Snacks, and Laughter. Fun will be had by all attending. You won’t want to miss it. A portion of the sales will be donated to benefit the Wood County Genealogical Society.
