Trail of Tears Commemorative Park

Native American Heritage Month at Trail of Tears Park and Heritage Center

Make your way over to the Trail of Tears Park and Heritage Center each Saturday in November to help celebrate National Native American Heritage Month! The Heritage Center will celebrate this historic month each Saturday at 12:00 noon with “Story Time Saturday”, a collection of children’s fables and stories as told by Kristina Scott, the center’s tour guide.

Kristina will be dressed in a Native American Tear Dress, much like a woman would wear back in the 1800’s. Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch to enjoy while hearing stories. And new this year–children’s crafts!

Be sure to also ask about supporting Volunteers for Cherokee Children, an organization that collects donations for Cherokee children of all ages who are in need.
