The last three weeks have been very hectic. Tony had several presentations about Cherokee plants and history but the most enjoyable was a presentation to 100 2nd graders at his grandchildren’s school.
After the presentations were over we attended the National Trail of Tears Conference in Missouri. It was a great opportunity to expand our knowledge about the forced removal of the Cherokee and also the other tribes who were forcibly removed.
We also transported two “Yellowwood” trees to the Cherokee Heritage Garden in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Several of the elders had requested these trees since they are not available in Oklahoma. It was our honor to be able to donate these trees and watch as they were planted in the garden.
Now that we are back home we will quickly resume the postings about significiant Cherokee plants.
