Guest Opinion. As Cherokees, we are in a race to save our language. Deputy Chief Bryan Warner and I know that whatever we can do to save the Cherokee language will be our greatest legacy. Today only about 2,000 first-language speakers remain alive, and most of these men and women are over the age of 70. We must learn from their wisdom and knowledge for as long as we can, and they deserve to live in comfort and dignity while they teach us.

Opinion.  In the 1990s, the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City had an exhibition called All Roads Are Good that included more than 100 pairs of moccasins placed in a circle with the drum in the center. Instead of simply placing the moccasins on the floor, they were strategically arranged with the heels elevated and the toes on the floor to allow the imagination to think of dancing. Some of the moccasins were beautifully beaded with images that tied them to their unique region or tribe from throughout Indian Country.
