Our Oldest Apalachee
Born around the year 1925, Raymond Cedars is the oldest Apalachee alive today! From his family stories about growing up in Louisiana to fighting in the Pacific Theater in WWII, Raymond Cedars is an extraordinary person who can still speak words of our original language and is loved and respected by his people, the Apalachee.
Our Newest Apalachee Elder
We would like to welcome our newest elder, Kenneth Sherman Kerry. As a councilman for many years serving the Apalachee people, Ken has reached and chosen the position of an elder. Today, he continues to pass down his knowledge of family/tribal history, to the knowledge and teachings of hand crafted basket weaving.
