Artist's Description

“There is no such thing as ‘part-Cherokee.’ Either you’re Cherokee or you’re not.
It isn’t the quantity of Cherokee blood in your veins that is important, but the quality of it . . . your pride in it. I have seen full-bloods who have virtually no idea of the great legacy entrusted to their care. Yet, I have seen people with as little as 1/500th blood quantum who inspire the spirits of their ancestors because they make being Cherokee a proud part of a their everyday life.”
Jim Pell: Principal Chief of the North Alabama Cherokee Tribe
