THINKING ABOUT OUR TEXAS CHEROKEES - STAY SAFE These are some pics from a Cherokee Nation event in Dallas earlier this year.
This event will be held at Kennesaw State Univerity (Sturgis Library, 385 Cobb Ave, Kennesaw, GA 30144). The Dividing Lines Symposium is an event in which academics, artists, institutions, community organizations and figures can discuss and showcase African American, Native American and Afro-Amerindian research topics and perspectives. The overall goal is to address the often overlooked interactions between Africans and Indigenous populations throughout the Americas in an interdisciplinary fashion. This is intended to be a potential annual event, laying the groundwork for more comprehensive studies in the future. Join us February 7th and 8th, 2020 for a series of educational and thought-provoking presentations, showcases and discussions.
CBIHP President Ty Wilson will be one of the guest speakers.
Last night CBIHP lost an elder. Jessie May Coulter was one of CBIHP's first members. She was also our eldest member and has a CBIHP volunteer award named after her for all her hard work and dedication. Without Jessie's knowledge, guidance, love and support CBIHP would not have been able to accomplish what we have. Her no nonsense wisdom and straight to the point approach will be missed. Jessie May inspired us to keep trying when everyone else thought it couldn't be done. Her can do attitude pushed CBIHP to become the Cherokee Community & Cultural Outreach non-profit of the year. To honor Jessie's memory CBIHP will continue the fight to preserve the Native American narrative. Jessie May Coulter will be missed.
I love you Granny,
Ty Wilson - CBIHP President
