The 2014 Ocmulgee Indian Celebration took place in Macon Georgia, on September 20-21. Photographer Amy Morris was there to capture the event. 

Some background:

"The third weekend in September welcomes the largest Native American gathering in the Southeast as more than 200 craftsmen, dancers, storytellers, living history demonstrators and others with ties to the area return to their ancestral home at Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon, Georgia. Named one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society, the celebration shares this vital piece of American history with some 20,000 guests to the monument each year, allowing new generations to understand the Native American heritage, arts, and culture first-hand through interaction and observation.

The Warriors of Anikituhwa, official cultural ambassadors of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, will be at the 2014 Ocmulgee Indian Celebration September 20th & 21st. They have performed at Colonial Williamsburg, the National Museum of the American Indian, and throughout the Southeast."
