An Introduction to the History & Culture of the Cherokee People

A Journey Towards Allyship and Uncolonization

For five days, participants will attend presentations by Cherokee tribal members on a variety of topics centered around Cherokee culture and history with the goal of moving towards uncolonization and allyship.

The legends, language, sense of place, history and food will slowly reveal the depth of Cherokee culture and spirituality and offer participants a background to reflect on their own expressions and connections to the Divine. Times of reflection will integrate the day's learning with the participant's own life experiences and spiritual growth without conflating them.
