The Cherokee Healing and Wellness Coalition is raffling various items of Native American and other jewelry and crafts to benefit the Forgiveness and Healing Journey along the Trail of Tears from Cherokee to Tahlequah. Conferences are planned in both places to address the experience of Cherokee ancestors and bring healing to current generations.
Raffle tickets are available from Carol Bradley Long at the Tribal Court as well as from other Coalition members. Carol can be contacted at 554-6222 or 788-2132. The drawing for the various items will be on Community Day at the Cherokee Indian Fair on Saturday, Oct. 22 rather than July 4th weekend as previously announced. You do not have to be present to win.
For information about the Forgiveness and Healing Journey, contact Patty Grant at 554-6549 or 736-0315.
