Cherokee Nation History & Humanities Class coming to North Texas

06/11/2014

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation is bringing its history and humanities class to Dallas on June 28-29. The free class is open to both tribal and non-tribal citizens.

The classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 28 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 29 at the Inter-Tribal Center of Texas, 1283 Record Crossing Road, in Dallas.

Cherokee Nation course instructor Roy Hamilton will teach the Cherokee history and culture, while also incorporating guest speakers into the class. The course allows students to not only learn about the chronological history of the Cherokee people, but also basic cultural aspects.

“It is important for the Cherokee people and the public in general to understand that the Cherokee Nation possesses a unique culture and history,” Hamilton said. “Presenting this course to our at-large communities offers the at-large citizens a chance to form a deeper connection to their heritage. Many will come away with a greater appreciation for the Cherokee Nation’s persevering spirit and rich history after the completion of this course.”

Participants will be presented a certificate of completion at the end of the course. Attendees are encouraged to bring a notebook and pen. Any missed course time can be completed online at http://www.cherokee.org/Services/Community/CommunityAndCulture/HumanitiesVideoSeries.aspx.
