Alfred Vick Presents to Athens Clarke Heritage Foundation

Alfred Vick will be presenting a lecture discussing the design of Diligwa, a 1710 Cherokee village in Park Hill, Oklahoma on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 3:00 pm at the Athens-Clarke County Library.  His talk will present some of the principles of traditional Cherokee land use / town layout and ethno-ecology, as documented in archeological evidence, historical accounts and oral traditions.  An understanding of these principles has been critical in the planning and construction of the village, which is the most historically-accurate representation of an early 18th century Cherokee town ever constructed.
