The City of Hernando, Mississippi will celebrate its Native American roots over the Fourth of July weekend, and officials from the Chickasaw Nation will be joining the celebration. Before the Trail of Tears forced their relocation to Oklahoma, Chickasaws numbered in the tens of thousands in what is now DeSoto County, and that history will be the primary focus of the city's 175th anniversary celebration.
