ALS: Crossing the Sahara

The Sahara used to be green-a place of grasslands, lakes, hippopotami, and folklore. Now, it is now a 3,500,000-square-mile desert. Join us to learn about traditional methods of crossing the Sahara Desert and modern methods. You’ll be transported along a journey across the Sahara from south to north and a discussion about ergs, oases, atomic testing grounds, human trafficking, and how to hitch a ride on a camel. Discover why your worst enemy in the Sahara is your own eyes!

The US Government forced the Cherokee to move from their settlements in the Southeastern United States to Oklahoma. The Cherokee were marched along four routes westward, one of which crossed Missouri. They suffered greatly as they made their way through Missouri in the winter. Learn how the Cherokee lived in the Southeast, what they faced as they went westward, and what exists today in Missouri to mark their travel through the state.
