Kathy Lynn Copeland and husband Joe brought and explained artifacts which gave us insight into the lifestyles of members of the Cherokee nations in the 18th and 19th Century at the November society meeting. Mixed in was history of the Cherokees from arrival in the Americas to their southeastern United States lives and then their forced removal to the Indian Territory.
Especially interesting were the stories passed down from their ancestors including how the coyote, blue birds, and red birds got their colors. Also, Kathy related the tale of how the poor old rabbit lost its long, beautiful tail.
Minutes and the Treasurer’s Report of the November 16, 2009 meeting are posted in the File Archive in the right column.
