what is YUCHiKiOKEE?
“ YOU-chee-Kie-OH-kee” | Ancient Artisans
The YUCHiKiOKEE Festival receives its namesake from the ancient artisans of 18th
century Columbia County. Two Native American tribes who once cultivated our land, the Yuchis (also spelled Ugee, Uchee, or Euchee) and the Kiokees were later assimilated into larger Native American Nations. Both tribes resided in what would later be named Columbia County, lending their names to two of the creeks that wind through the county and join into the Savannah River – the Euchee Creek and the Kiokee Creek.
Art | Music | Dance | Heritage
Located in Evans, GA, (two hours east of Atlanta, GA) the two-day festival celebrates Columbia County’s art, music, dance, and heritage! Saturday, March 21st
will begin with live entertainment at 11:00 a.m., Opening Ceremonies at noon, followed by performances from the organizations of Columbia County Arts, a juried fine art competition, and artisans from the southeast.
