History and Culture of the Cherokee Tribe
Join TPS- Mars Hill University and the Ramsey Center for Regional Studies for a weeklong study of the Cherokee people and their role in Appalachian history. This Summer Institute is free for all teachers in North Carolina. We will host teachers on campus July 29th - August 2nd. Our week will begin early Monday morning with a field trip to the Oconaluftee Indian Village in Cherokee, NC where we will explore the museum, participate in hands-on cultural experiences, eat an authentic Cherokee dinner, and view the outdoor drama "Unto These Hills" which tells the history of the Cherokee beginning in 1780. Teachers will work with Cherokee objects from the Ramsey Center archives and explore additional digital resources from the Library of Congress, ending the week with time to create a ready-to-use lesson plan for their own classrooms. Participants who plan to stay on campus will be housed in our cozy guest house for only $35 per night. Snacks and lunch will be provided free of charge. Dinner will be on your own except for Monday, when we will be in Cherokee. Registration will remain open until May 31st. If you plan to stay on campus, please send a check to:
