IN THEIR MOCCASINS: THE CHEROKEE JOURNEY OF CHANGE

Students are transported to the year 1838 as the Cherokee were forced to leave their homeland in Georgia to walk on the Trail of Tears. Assuming the character identity of actual Cherokee Indians who travelled this life-changing journey, students gain empathy and appreciation for the hardships Native Americans endured, as well as the rapid cultural changes occurring at the same time. The dramatic story of the Trail of Tears unfolds in real-time as students are led on an unforgettable trek through the winding paths of the Atlanta History Center’s Quarry Garden, home to Georgia’s largest collection of native plants. Along the way, students make decisions that bring to light real historical scenarios experienced by Georgia’s natives. Students in character meet and speak with Sweetwater, a Cherokee grandmother who has lost her group along the trail and needs their help. As they reach their destination, students have learned about Cherokee culture by living it.To complement the Trail of Tears experience and the theme of cultural change, students participate in three additional experience stations. The story of Sequoyah’s invention of the written Cherokee language comes to life in an engaging dramatic performance that entertains as much as it educates. Students are then challenged to make deductions about how Cherokee culture changed after European contact by touching and handling real objects that show these adaptations. Finally, students enter the exhibition, Native Lands: Indians and Georgia, where they learn the cultural traditions that survive with the Cherokee today.
