16th Annual Trail of Tears Association Conference & Symposium is being held this week in Cherokee, North Carolina. This years event is being hosted by the North Carolina Chapter of TOTA.
Unfortunately a local farmer choose to harrow off a great deal of the Kituwah Mound so that the entire field would accomodate his entire corn crop. Only a small portion of the mound exists today and the area is now owned and preserved by the Eastern Band of Cherokee.
Following a nice catered supper by Granny’s Kitchen, we had the opportunity to watch the Warriors of AniKituhwa. The Warriors of AniKituhwa performed a couple of war dances as well as some Cherokee social dances including the Buffalo dance. We had a delightful evening.
