The Green Corn Ceremony

By: Christy Torchon

The Cherokee and the Creek Indians all celebrated the same day: The Green Corn Ceremony. This is important because they wanted to celebrate the renewal of life.

The ceremony started in July and ended in August. The Cherokee believed that this was a time where people should be thankful for the harvest and their life. However the Creek Indians focus more on the forgiveness of your past sins.
