      ALABAMA FRONTIER: CULTURAL CROSSROAD SYMPOSIUM
      Montgomery, AL- Landmarks Foundation, in conjunction with the Alabama Humanities
      Foundation and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to present the final
      program in the symposium series "ALABAMA FRONTIER: CULTURAL CROSSROADS." This
      concluding symposium, "Alabama's Indians Today," will take place at the Montgomery
      Museum of Fine Arts auditorium on Saturday, January 27, 2007 from 8:30 am until 3:45
      pm.
      Over the past five years, the symposium, "ALABAMA FRONTIER: CULTURAL CROSSROADS"
      has involved an intensive study of Central Alabama and its major Indian group, the Creeks.
      Begun in 2002 with discussions by leading scholars on the first European intrusions and
      the resulting changes in the Creek lives; the series continued through 2006 with the
      removal of the Creek Indians to the western territories.
      This upcoming program, aimed at the general public, will focus on the role and status of
      Alabama's current Indian population. Among the speakers will be Dr. Kathryn Braund, an
      expert of Native Americans in the region; Mrs. Eloise Josey, Director of the Alabama Indian
      Affairs Commission; Teresa Paglione, an archaeologist with the U.S. Department of
      Agriculture; Mrs. Jackie Matte, an authority on the MOWA Indians and David Hobbs, a
      noted re-enactor. There will also be a representative from the Alabama Poarch Indians.
      Kyle Braund and Tamara Beane will exhibit traditional and interpretive Native American art.
      Dr. Craig Sheldon and Dr. John Hall will moderate the program.
      The day's activities begin with registration and a light breakfast at 8:30 am, a boxed lunch
      at noon and will conclude with a tour of the artistic component. For more information and
      registration call 334-240-4518 or 334-240-4500.
