Ocmulgee Indian Celebration Draws Thousands

Ocmulgee National Monument

National Park News

The 19th annual Ocmulgee Indian Celebration was held in the park last weekend, with about 17,600 people attending the event. 

On September 17th, during the “school day” portion of the event, approximately 2,000 area school children attended. 

Over 250 Native Americans participated in this year’s event.  Interpretive and protection rangers from Horseshoe Bend, Canaveral, Southeast Regional Office, Chattahoochee, Natchez Trace, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Timucuan assisted the park’s staff. Also providing support were local deputies, Ocmulgee National Monument Association staff, and volunteers – a total of 160 of the latter, who collectively contributed 1,052 hours of service.

Eighteen medical cases were reported during the event, which was managed under ICS.  Guy LaChine, the park’s chief of operations, was IC.
