The Standing Stone American Indian Cultural Center (SSAICC) will be an interactive, multi-dimensional facility. Located in the heart of the historic downtown Monterey business district it will help meet the needs of the area through history preservation and presentation. It will help stimulate the economy and provide a serve in continuing education. The center will concentrate its efforts on edu cating the local public, visitors and schoolchildren in the ways of the American Indians of the past present and future, along with the rich history associated with the Standing Stone/Monterey area. By providing user friendly technology, 3-dimensional displays and educational programs, SSAICC will interact in a personal way with all those who participate. Though events such as re-enactments and powwows, history will be brought to life in a way that is both entertaining and educational. And the proper handling and housing of historic documents, photographs and artifacts will help save the past for generations to come. The benefits that the Standing Stone American Indian Center will provide can only help improve an area that is growing and expanding. Creating new jobs, contributing to the community and assisting in making Monterey a tourist destination will be one if its primary goals. And finally, the ultimate reason for creating the Standing Stone American Indian Cultural Center is to continue a long time American Indian tradition know as the give-away. SSAICC will “give” to the citizens of Monterey, the residents of Putnam County, the State of Tennessee and beyond, a place to come, gather, and be a part of, a culture, heritage and history like no other. Help us preserve the past so that we may ensure a brighter future for all.
