Outings & Activities

Indian Lore

On this camping trip we went to historic Red Clay State Park to earn the Indian Lore merit badge.  We were taught by a Cherokee Indian named Jamie Russell.  Jamie taught us about the different dances and social life of the Cherokee.  He also taught us about the combat and hunting methods of the Cherokee.  Saturday afternoon we played some of the games he taught us and we built model wigwam homes.  The last thing we did was share Native American stories, signals, or discuss famous Native American people. As always, click the collage below to see the full album of pictures!   Gavin H. Troop 2319 Historian
