The result of this oversight is revealed in our lack of understanding about the forest and in the careless treatment of the environment. This program will include a great deal of show-and-tell, items brought by the presenter to share with the audience.  Learn about Cherokee crafts, weapons, hunting techniques, philosophies, religion, clothing, tools, foods, medicines, and games.  Lunch will be available for $10.00 plus tax.
