04/03/2014

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation is offering its history and humanities course to the public during classes that start April 8 in Muldrow.

The Cherokee Nation is hosting the free classes at the Muldrow Cherokee Community Center, 603 N. Main St. Classes will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays through April 24.

Cherokee Nation course instructors Catherine Foreman-Gray and Roy Hamilton will explore Cherokee history and culture with students, while incorporating guest speakers, artists and musicians. The course allows students to not only learn about the chronological history of the Cherokee people, but also learn basic cultural aspects.

“It is important for Cherokee people and the public in general to understand the Cherokee Nation possesses a unique culture and history,” Foreman-Gray said. “Incorporating our artists, storytellers and other guest speakers allows students access to the culture not available through simply reading a history book or attending a typical history class.”

Participants are encouraged to bring a notebook and pen. To register, contact Catherine Foreman-Gray at 918-453-5289 or catherine-gray@cherokee.org.
