Cherokees speak on DVD

DVD captures Cherokee elders memories, hopes for futureThe LDA team, consisting of four members, asked residents about what was important to them in their community and future generations and asked them to share memories, future goals. They took video of what residents had to say and compounded it into a 37-minute DVD.

After the screening, Dudley told the group that their words that LDA captured is what they wanted to attain. During the video, which was narrated by Deputy Chief Joe Grayson, residents also shared stories from their pasts and related some of the tribe's culture.

What seemed to be the theme is residents' hope of preserving the Cherokee culture and people.
