Hopkinsville, KY 42240
November is National Native American Heritage Month and the Trail of Tears Commemorative Park is doing its part in celebrating the month. The Heritage Center will celebrate the month each Saturday in November with “Granny Tell Me a Story” for the children to hear fables told by Kristina Scott the center’s tour guide. These are stories Ethel Adkins, former tour guide and Kristina’s mother, told her grandchildren as they were growing up. Kristina will be dressed in a Native American Tear Dress, much like a grandmother would wear back in the 1800’s. Saturday stories will start at noon.
These lunchtime stories will be held in the cabin and are free as part of the Nation’s Native American Heritage Month, “Guiding Our Destiny with Heritage and Traditions”. The Heritage Center’s Log Cabin, at the Trail of Tears Commemorative Park, houses artifacts from the Cherokee’s as well as other tribes. The cabin is observing winter hours Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Kristina urges the public to bring a sack lunch at noon and visit the cabin at the park to hear her stories.
