I just got back from a wonderful visit to the Cherokee Nation. I had a great time and I learned a lot. I went to Will Rogers’ 131st birthday party, visited his birthplace and explored the Will Rogers Museum. I went to a lot of important places in the history of the Cherokee Nation, visited a recreation of an early Cherokee village, and saw a very moving exhibit on the Trail of Tears at the Cherokee Heritage Museum that gave me a whole new insight into American history.
I also had a chance to meet Principal Chief Chad Corntassle Smith and talk about the past, present and future of this remarkable people. I look forward to writing about all this at length for GoNOMAD.com and sharing my photos and videos.
One of the most important highlights of my trip was meeting a lot of friendly and knowledgeable people, like our tour guides Lauren Jones and Joe Knight.
