Cherokees, Chickasaws, and Shawnees of Kentucky!
I was just trying to help my kid understand the differences between the Chickasaws, the Shawnees, and the Cherokees for his Sixth Grade lesson. They used to have the Cherokee tribal dancers at the Barbourville Daniel Boone Festival. I know Shack is partial to the Shawnees. I remember, when I was a kid, my Dad was giving some Indonesian students at Clemson, where he taught, some tours of interesting places near Clemson, and he took them up to the Cherokee Reservation in Western North Carolina. Native Americans were similar to Democrats, they were not very big on unity, or even working together. Anyway, I'm sure we all are glad to know that Kentucky youngsters are being taught about their Shawnee, Cherokee, and Chickasaw predecessors in Kentucky. Kenneth Stepp.
