Event description

Description

The Alabama Folklife Association is pleased to offer a Cherokee Leaf Pounding workshop at Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve. We are fortunate to welcome Mrs. Rosa Hall, naturalist, educator, and Native American living historian, as the instructor. She will be assisted by her daughter, an author and living historian, Monica Newman Moore. AFA is pleased to be able to provide these workshops. We will be pounding away on The Back Porch, shaded by the pavilion while enjoying the surrounding woods and gardens. In accordance with federal laws, AFA events are held at facilities that meet ADA. If you need any specialized accommodations for other disabilities, please contact the AFA via email: alabamafolklife@att.net or phone 205.956.9888. You do not need experience to enjoy the morning, but you do need to bring some supplies. Refreshments will be provided. We would like to thank the Daniel Foundation of Alabama and the Alabama State Council on the Arts for making this event possible.
