Cherokee Indian Presentation

Today our local library hosted a group of women that do a presentation on the Cherokee Indians. The are that we live in was once inhabited with various clans of the Cherokee Indians. It was a very well put together presentation. Four of the women played instruments and sang for us including singing Amazing Grace in the Cherokee language.
They explained how the families lived and what their daily lives were like. One woman told old folk tales about nature handed down from one generation to another. Another woman spoke about The Trail of Tears and why the Cherokees were taken from this land.

That would have been very interesting. Were the women decendants?
