Cherokee, North Carolina (Travel Memory)

Besides my love affair with California, another place I loved visiting was Cherokee, North Carolina.

The Cherokee Native Americans were believed to originate from the Great Lakes region, living among Appalachian trails.

In 1838 the Cherokee were forced out of their homes and forced to walk 1,000 miles to states such as Oklahoma.  4,000 people died along this Trail of Tears.

The ghosts of these Indians are present in the wind near Cherokee, North Carolina, among the tall trees and gargling rivers.  I proudly purchased a handmade bead tribe bracelet and payed my respects to my ancestors.

The Cherokee live on, so pay your respects.
