Cherokee Heritage Center

November 6, 2009

We had a great experience at the Cherokee Heritage Center, where we got to see a reconstructed village from the 1500s and learn about stone age crafts and daily life among the Cherokee.  That was Logan’s American History lesson for today, and his instructor gave him a quiz:

We learned much more than this, including how to use a river cane (like bamboo) as a blow gun for hunting small game, and how to make flint rocks into arrowheads, as Noel Grayson demonstrates here (these stone age techniques are 10,000 years old.  He is using the charcoal tip of a burned stick as his ‘pencil’)
