Ancient Village Work Day

May 31, Tuesday, Ancient Village Work Day

Eight volunteers, including three tribal councilors, showed up on Saturday to get their hands dirty and to help us create a food storage shelter in the ancient village. Volunteers also helped patch up some of the old summer huts. The food shelter is a box on stilts above the ground that protects food from animals; this was an important device to protect foodstuffs such as venison, fruit, and vegetables. Thanks to all for helping out and contributing financially to the cause of Cherokee culture!
