American Indians

Our Native American Indians, America’s first peoples, have shaped our nation through their cultural, religious, social, and political contributions. It is up to us, as Daughters, to contribute back to them through the many programs of the American Indians Committee.

Chief Tishomingo Chapter reads American Indian minutes at each chapter meeting, presents a program on American Indians every other year, and participates in American Indian activities throughout the community.

Constitution Week

This committee's goal is to bring the U.S. Constitution and the importance of its preservation to the attention of the general public. Each year the chapter invites the public to join them in a patriotic celebration in the courtroom of the historic Tishomingo County courthouse. Local
Cub, Boy, and Girl scouts, the high school choir, and other patriotic service groups are invited to participate in the event.

A proclamation is secured from the Mayor of Iuka. Articles are placed in local papers and materials are provided to those attending the celebration on the Constitution. Constitution displays are placed in the Tishomingo County Archives & History Museum and the Iuka Public Library. A Constitution Fact is given at chapter meetings.

Memorial Day

In the Shady Grove Cemetery in historic Tishomingo County lie the graves of the heroes who fought for the Southern cause. The trenches where the hastily buried dead lie in all indifference to war blast or signal call are plainly visible. 

Our chapter honors these soldiers with American flags.

 

 National Defense

The NSDAR inherently stands for adequate defense of the nation. Further, it strives to encourage the preservation of our priceless heritage, protection of the Constitution and the free enterprise system, and the upholding of the precepts and ideals of a Democracy in a Republic.

The chapter reports on National Defense at each chapter meeting. A National Defense Program is planned every two years.

The Flag of the United States of America

The committee's purpose is to encourage a strong patriotic feeling and respect for the flag. An important objective is to educate children and adults in the correct use and proper display of the flag in accordance with the Flag Code adopted by Congress.

The chapter began celebrating Flag Day with a flag retirement ceremony in 2008 at the old Tishomingo County Courthouse. We present flag facts at all public events.
