Sequoyah Birthplace Museum to host Statehood Day

June 1 from 12-5pm at the Museum located in Vonore, Tenn.  The 1809 Blacksmith shop will be open with demonstrations going on throughout the afternoon.  Cherokee Storyteller Lloyd Arneach Sr. and his daughter, Dawn Arneach, both EBCI tribal members from the Yellowhill Community, will be in attendance.  Lloyd will be sharing Cherokee stories and Dawn will be helping anyone who wants help with researching their family trees and general genealogy questions.  All Statehood Day activities are free as well as admission to the museum.  This program is sponsored in part from a grant from the East Tennessee Foundation John D.
