"We been enjoying the music and being able to find out some of what the history is on some of the dream catchers. My husband is a big fan of the stones, again seeing the face paintings and learning what the things are. You only get to see this history in the books, so you are getting to see it face to face and it's interesting and it's different," says Phylisa Hammontree of Warner Robins.
This marks the 21st year the Ocmulgee National Monument has has provided a celebration of Indian culture in Macon.
