Lean about the native Americans that lived here...
Please join us in appreciation for the "new wing" of our web site, donated by St.
Petersburg, Florida artist, musical performer and story teller, Mac Perry. He developed
this section because of his passion for learning about the native Americans who
preceded us in these Sacred Lands. Please enjoy your journey into the past, with glimpses at
the present, and a hopeful outlook toward the future.
Your input is very welcome for the development of this web site. If you have an area of
interest, a contribution, or photos to share, please contact Doris. This organization is
all about bringing us together, understanding history, and encouraging our
awareness of our natural environment. Nature is sacred and so we seek its
preservation. We also recognize that the Indians of days gone by, left behind items
which they considered sacred, and so we seek the preservation of mounds, artifacts,
and Mounds. It is our great blessing that contemporary Native Americans visit
and give their time to present mind and spirit expanding events that help to deepen
the understanding of our relationship with the natural world.
