The following photos are from Trail of Tears PowWow

It was cloudy and windy most of the day. Check out the rainbow.

 

Drum Circle

Samantha and I had a great time! I love the authentic Native American Indian dance competitions with contestants in full Native American regalia. Anything and everything Native American is there to buy from vendors; dream catchers, jewelry, pottery, smudge sticks, sweet grass, paintings, books, arts and crafts. I got two dream catchers for my grandkids and dancing bells for Samantha. The bells are really cool. I got my usual, sage for smudging and an arrowhead.

The Pow Wow is held every year at the Trail of Tears Commemorative Park in Hopkinsville, KY. This historic park is one of the few documented sites of actual trail and campsites used during the forced removal of the Cherokee people to “Indian Territory”. It was used as an encampment in 1838 and 1839. This park is the burial site for two Cherokee Chiefs who died during the removal – Fly Smith and Whitepath. This long, cruel relocation has become known as the “Trail Of Tears” and by Native Americans as “The Trail Where They Cried”.
