08.12.13 Cherokee: Soco Road

with one comment

Earlier this year I began visiting the Cherokee Reservation in the western hills of North Carolina. I’m drawn to intersections of cultural politics, geography and historical events that have marginalized communities and individuals. This interest has led me to the townships of South Africa, Democratic Republic of Congo, and now western North Carolina. I don’t know what Cherokee will reveal to me about itself, or about myself. The history of the Cherokee people and the lands on which they live is deep and complicated and still unfolding, as is the history of the ways they have been represented.
