Native Americans to Create SeMo Culture Center

November 24, 2003 - Posted at 8:02 a.m. CDT

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - American Indians in southeast Missouri are creating a place to celebrate their culture. 

A group is trying to open the American Indian Center of the Heartland.  It's planned as a cultural non-profit and educational organization to reach American Indians in parts of five states.

A Cape Girardeau couple, Michael and Glinda Ladd Seabaugh, have led efforts for the center in their community about 115 miles from St. Louis.  Last year, the Seabaughs bought an American Legion hall in town while the Legion was developing a new facility.  They held the cultural center's first organizational meeting in the building on November 15.

The Seabaughs think their Mississippi River town is uniquely situated to draw in visitors from southern Illinois, northeast Arkansas, western Kentucky and Tennessee.
