Georgia's Native People




Thousands of years before the first European settlers arrived in North America an ancient culture of native people inhabited this land. Even before the Creeks and Cherokees, a complex culture of people, the mound builders, forged great cities across our landscape. Monuments of these civilizations can be seen in some of Georgia?s state parks and historic sites. We'll visit
Kolomoki Mounds near Blakely, GA, and Etowah Mounds in Cartersville, GA.

Next we'll visit New Echota, the capital of the Cherokee Nation before their forced removal to the west. The first Native American newspaper, the Cherokee Phoenix, was published here on Feb. 21, 1828 in both Cherokee and English.


We'll also visit a Pow Wow and learn about primitive weapons.
