Osiyo, Voices of the Cherokee People

episode / view more episodes

In this episode, we meet Cherokee Nation cultural biologist Feather Smith Trevino as she brings together plant life and cultural knowledge. We watch as Kimber Take follows a childhood dream of working in law enforcement while providing much needed support and understanding to fellow officers. Knokovtee Scott was a Cherokee National Treasure and perhaps the most influential Cherokee shell carver in recent history. We were lucky enough to spend some time with Knokovtee before he passed away and witnessed his legacy from his early days teaching to his legacy today. In our Cherokee Almanac, we visit Red Clay, the last capital of the Cherokee Nation prior to our forced removal and learn of the struggle and heartbreak tied to that land.
