Eastern TN/NC Cherokee Nation
by Jason Terrell
When people think about the Cherokee, they often look to the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma and the Dawes Roll when doing research. Many may not realize that there is a strong Cherokee Community in western North Carolina within the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, a federally recognized tribe with a long history in the area that stretches back well before the forced removal period in the 1830s. Cherokee Family Researcher Jason Terrell will share the story of the Eastern Band and some of the differences between the Cherokees in the East and their cousins in Oklahoma.
Access will be through GoToWebinar. Instructions and Connectivity Link will be forwarded via email to all registrants upon registration, six days prior and 1 hour prior to the event.
