Ocmulgee National Monument

I’ve shared my most modish picks of Native American accessories to trim country Western fashion during August.

Make plans to extend knowledge about this skillful culture in Georgia by visiting one of Cowgirl Candace’s childhood favorite field trip destinations: Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon.

The 702-acre Southern park protects and preserves a 17,000-year continuum of people in their Middle Georgia environment, and features more than 2,000 artifacts and displays. The monument is referred to as “lands commonly known as the Old Ocmulgee Fields.”

Annually, the monument also attracts more than 200 storytellers, craftsmen, dancers and historians to one of the Southeast’s largest Native American gatherings during the third weekend in September. The monument is so worth the visit with family and friends to understand the cultural significance and contributions of Native Americans in the South.
