Native Americans of Georgia Bus Tour

Travel with an archaeologist to three major Native American sites in North Georgia: the Etowah Indian Mounds, New Echota, and the Chief Vann House. At each site you will go on a tour led by an archaeologist or historian to learn about the Mississippian period, the Historic period, and Indian Removal. Stand on top of an Indian Mound overlooking the village plaza, see the stone fishing traps in the Etowah River that were constructed by natives hundreds of years ago, experience the printing of the Cherokee Phoenix newspaper, enter the Cherokee courthouse, and see the home of a Cherokee planter. Your reservations includes a boxed picnic lunch.
