Traditional Cherokee Dances and Songs at Moccasin Lake Nature Park

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Ryan and Dawni Mackey will present traditional Cherokee dances and songs on Saturday, Feb. 23, 1 to 5 p.m. at Moccasin Lake Nature Park. The presentation will be followed by a game of social stick ball.

In social stick ball, the men play the women, but the women do not use ball sticks. The game will be adjacent to the park’s entrance gate. Those who intend to play may want to bring shorts or sweatpants, a t-shirt and athletic shoes. Those who would like to watch may want to bring a lawn chair.

The event is free and open to the public. A potluck meal is planned. If you bring a dish to share, you will be given a ticket to attend. Water, plates, utensils, and napkins will be provided by the Cherokees of Central Florida. Those whose last names begin with letters A-H are asked to bring a main dish; I-Q are asked to bring a vegetable or salad; and R-Z are asked to bring a fruit plate or desert.

Moccasin Lake Nature Park is located at 2750 Park Trail Lane. For more information, send an email to centralflorida@cherokee.org.
