The American Indian Hunting Camp has been rescheduled for 1-3 p.m. Nov. 16 outside the Crestview Public Library. Relive the past with Farris Powell’s impression of Blue Heron (Wah-ka-chobee), a Seminole/Creek Indian.



Powell will portray the Seminole warrior, who lived at the turn of the 19th century, in the grassy area across Farmer Street east. The program moves under the Old Spanish Trail Park pavilion in case of rain.



See history come to life in this authentic 1830s hunting camp, featuring period-appropriate clothing, weapons, tools, games, musical instruments and food. Sample the Indian drink “soffkee.”



The program is for school-aged children through adults. Bring blankets or lawn chairs and dress appropriately for the weather.



Registration is not required for this free event, sponsored by the Friends of the Crestview Library, an anonymous sponsor and Cub Scout Pack 799, Webelo Den 11 and Wolf Den 4.
