Thanks for the comments.
it sure looks cool and i hope motivates folks to take more of an interest in
their waters.
da lo ge is how a cherokee pronounces the cherokee word for hogsucker! :)
so next time your looking in a seine-in-a little hoover you can yell out DA
LO GE if you have a hint of cherokee in your veins.
the project sign also features native american's fishing techniques from
woven traps to poisons to arranging rocks to concentrate fish for spearing.
why all the indian verbage? because audubon acres was the site of a large
cherokee village and was donated to audubon by the cherokee poet, writer and
naturalist robert sparks walker. also audubon acres is on the trail of tears and
has many signs through out making trees w/ cherokee names and uses.
