Some of the links above and below do not have a history with the Teaching & Sharing Centers, or my photography, but have been provided because they provide new, different, or substantial additional Cherokee or Indigenous links or information. Like with any topic, there are many "versions" of the truth when it comes to Cherokee (or any First Nations) history.  I encourage you to remember, a healthy discernment should always be a part of the process when searching for the actual truth.  Also, at times people forget that American Indians grew and evolved just like everybody else did (and we still do). Some would have us remain a stereotype for their own gratification, but change is a part of life.  What we do seem to do better than most, is hold onto the best and important dynamics of tradition and history, as we blossom in today's world, the way our Creator intended us to. 


Other American Indian and related sites . . .


The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian opened to the public on my birthday in 2004.  Finances usually preclude such things, but when solicited by mail to become a charter member a year before that opening, I responded, "My native heritage is too far back generationally to be 'officially' anything.  Yet, God has guided me to honor that heritage in what He has called me to do with my life.  So I guess I will give you that gift for my birthday.  Even though it is only the minimum, may God bless both of our endeavors to honor the great heritage we bring to this — our — nation."  Though I have been unable to afford a visit there, I feel proud to be a small part of the NMAI.  The below links take you to some of their  pages.  The search page is an ongoing endeavor to make nearly every item in their vast archives visually accessible to all of us, along with information pertaining to the object or artifact.
