Hudson and I went to Spring Park to enjoy some fun at the Oka Kapassa Festival. This special weekend marked the return of over twelve different Native American tribes to Tuscumbia, Alabama, where many of their ancestors once lived before they were forcibly removed from the area.
We saw an intertribal friendship dance. We heard traditional drum music. We saw demonstrations of pottery and basket making. I got hairstyle ideas from all the pretty braids I saw on the pretty Cherokee girls. And, I bought an adorable, beaded necklace from the sweetest, elderly Chickasaw lady for only five dollars.
A little bit of culture in the late summer sunshine with my favorite little guy AND a unique addition to my jewelry collection? That's my idea of a good time.
