A View From The Eastern Band Of Cherokee Indians For The Moccasin Bend Lecture Series Finale
The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians is one of only three Cherokee tribes recognized by the Federal Government - and the only one east of the Mississippi generations after the Trail of Tears.
Richard Sneed served as the Band’s Principal Chief between 2017 until last month.
Next week, he will be the final speaker for this year’s Moccasin Bend Lecture Series, presented by National Park Partners, on Monday starting at 7 PM at the Tennessee Aquarium’s IMAX Theater in downtown Chattanooga.
The title of his talk: “Culturally Deliberate in the 21st Century.”
I spoke with Chief Sneed and Tricia Mims, executive director of National Park Partners.
