SPECIAL GUESTS SIMON FRASER'S HIGHLANDER REGIMENT
The 71st Highland Regiment, Fraser’s Highlanders, was raised in Scotland for the revolution. They participated in every major battle and campaign in the war from Brandywine, PA to Guilford Courthouse, NC and the final surrender at Yorktowne.
They will be encamped with us at Leatherwood on October 3 and October 4!
Over the past ten years, the Warriors of AniKituhwa have inspired Cherokee people and the public with their image of strength and pride, bringing back dances from the 1700s, when Cherokees were a world power, making treaties with England, France, Spain, South Carolina, and Virginia. They broke the old stereotypes of Trail of Tears and Plains feather warbonnets, and provided a new image for Cherokee people. Most recently, The Warriors were invited to and participated in the 2019 London New Year’s Day Parade and have been invited back again for 2020.
The Warriors will be with us all day on Saturday and will perform their dance program at lunchtime.
Attakullakulla was the Peace Chief of the Cherokee Nation from about 1754 until his death (ca.1780-1783). He was called the “most important Indian of his day.” He was trained to become a leader among the Cherokee people.
Attakullakulla is portrayed magnificently by Captain Robert K. Rambo (USA, Ret.), who earned his BA (History) from the Virginia Military Institute, his teacher certification (History) at UVAWise, and his M.A. (US History Cherokee Studies Program) at Western Carolina University. His research centered on Attakullakulla during the 18th century.
Attakullakulla travels through time to be with us Sunday morning.
