The Lebanon Housing Authority’s Ross “Today” program family event for November was on Native American History. Special guest Kay Hunt, a descendent of the Cherokee Indian Tribe, spoke on many subjects pertaining to her tribe. She told of her ancestors traveling the Trail of Tears and about the different tribes. She provided us with a recipe for Squaw Bread, which program participants made and enjoyed. Hunt told of the Cherokee Alphabet and how it came about. She talked of the medicine men and the herbs and roots that were used in tea form for their medicines. Hunt told of her knowledge of survival that would help her survive a disaster if one was to occur. She brought along a display of different clothing, bead work and wore a dress that is called a “tare dress,” which was made of fabric squares that were torn from fabric traded with the Settlers. She displayed a leather dress, which was worn until the Europeans came with cloth clothing. The program ended with a question and answer session.
