Native American culture focus of Ocmulgee National Monument workshops


For a few dozen children, Native American traditions came to life Wednesday. At the Ocmulgee National Monument’s visitors center in Macon, wide-eyed youngsters learned about prehistoric ground sloths and buffalo, and how Native Americans made fire. They even got the chance to touch deer hide, hold an animal’s shoulder bone used for farming and play a game of stickball, common in Native American tribes.
