Emory Jones’ book “Distant Voices: The story of the Nacoochee Valley Indian Mound” has been turned into a documentary film, which will be shown at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Based on the book by Emory Jones, a documentary of an Indian mound will be shown at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3 at the Sautee Nacoochee Center theatre.

“Distant Voices, The Story of the Nacoochee Valley Indian Mound” covers the history of the Indian mound from the building of the mound, occupation by the Cherokee, alleged visit by DeSoto, excavation in 1915 up to the current ownership by the State of Georgia. The documentary features more than two dozen notable local artists, historians, writers and poets. It includes original music selections by Dede Vogt.

The runtime for the video is 63 minutes. The showing will be hosted by the SNC History Museum and will be a “pass the hat” fundraiser for SNC.
