TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA — The Cherokee Nation is bringing its history and humanities course to Kansas City, Missouri, on July 25-27. The course is free and open to the public.
The classes will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, July 25; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, July 26; and 1-5 p.m. Sunday, July 27. The classes will be held at the University of Missouri – Kansas City Volker Campus, room 119 of the education building, 615 E. 52nd St.
Cherokee Nation instructors Catherine Foreman-Gray and Roy Hamilton will teach Cherokee history and culture from pre-European contact with Native Americans, through present day.
“We present a basic timeline of Cherokee history and events, but our course is focused on our traditional Cherokee arts, culture and oral history,” Foreman-Gray said. “The presentation is rich with video and visual resources we’ve developed with Cherokee artists and storytellers.”
This is a non-credit course, but participants will be presented a certificate of completion for attending all three days.
Space is limited. To reserve a spot contact Catherine Foreman-Gray at 918-453-5289 firstname.lastname@example.org.
