CCS Monthly Meeting
Next Monthly Meeting of the Cherokee Cultural Society:
Thursday, September 6, 2001
- Exploring the Booger Dance Tradition
- A special song from a CCS member
- A Review of the Cherokee Nation Holiday, to be held Labor Day weekend. See the Cherokee Nation site for news on the ANNUAL HOLIDAY in Tahlequah, OK.
Members and guests of all ages can look forward to an action packed fall, 2001 with CCS, starting with September's exploration of the mysterious BOOGER DANCE tradition. At the September 6 meeting we will learn about the ancient Cherokee masks and costumes that were part of the dance - filled with intrigue, imagination and loads of fun for everyone.
- October 4 we will make traditional "Booger" masks - something everyone can enjoy.
- During November we will have a unique costume party to sport our masks (or any other costume you enjoy wearing.)
Mark your calendars now, to capture all the fun!
