Ocmulgee Indian Celebration Draws Record Breaking Crowd

Ocmulgee National Monument

National Park News

The 20th annual Ocmulgee Indian Celebration was held in the park in mid-September, with a record attendance of over 18,000 people.  

On September 16th, during the “school day” portion of the event, approximately 2,800 area school children attended.

More than 250 Native Americans, representing over 20 Federal recognized tribes, participated in this year’s event.  Interpretive and protection rangers from Horseshoe Bend, Chattahoochee River, Congaree, Andersonville, and Timucuan assisted the park’s staff.  Also providing support were local deputies, Ocmulgee National Monument Association staff, and 170 volunteers, who collectively contributed 1,160 hours of service.

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