Cherokee is in my blood. My grandpa was full blooded and I don't have an Indian card because of the past Indian family were killed or something during the travel from n.Carolina, I guess.

From Kathy B. on 07/25/2013

We have gone on a float trip several times through the Illinois River and stayed at the Diamond Head twice. The last time we went our experience was horrific. Several of the parents and children on the trip witnessed male staff members beating a sick stray dog to death with a shovel on the premises. When we approached them and demanded they stop they threw the dog in the back of a pickup and drove off. Soon after we heard several gun shots. The staff would not acknowledge the incident nor explain themselves. It was extremely disturbing for us and the high school aged children with us. The animal could have been easily cared for and taken away by animal control or the humane society and was not bothering guests or putting anyone in danger. We will certainly not be returning.
