Tradition and The Snowbird | Periscope

Cherokee people currently gather herbs, as ancient ancestors did

Over 500 Cherokee now live on tribal lands that make up the Snowbird Community. Tribal lands, or reservations, are protected for use by Native Americans. The Snowbird Cherokee have kept much of their land natural and scenic, as it was when their ancestors lived there. Preserving the land also helps preserve their traditional ways.
