          Cool pics SGT.Digger, lots of interesting artifacts! I think a few boogers slipped in through the cracks on that first frame wich happens alot when the folks currating accept donations but are not versed with weeding out fakes but the rest all look like legit Southeast (Tennessee/Alabama) artifacts.

                Where is the Cherokee removal park. I would like to know more about it. As for the artifacts they display, probably none of them are Cherokee or any historic tribes. Nice artifacts though.

                  Here’s the website https://www.tennesseerivervalleygeot...de1ae75a3cc4d4 . They had some trade pipes, trade beads, iron hoes , possibly some pottery and a pipe or two. Most of Arrowheads predated them. The nice lady at visitors center said that around the 1730’s they adopted to Americans ways of living and adopted weaponry probably as soon as they could get them , they built houses, farms & had slaves to work them and had other businesses and slowly their territory began to be stolen away via treaties until the forced march “trail of tears” like many other Indians. They have a big library with lots of books too.
