Reel Appalachia: Films at the Ramsey Center

April 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

First Language, speaker TBA

Over fourteen thousand Cherokee remain in their ancestral homelands in the mountains of North Carolina, but few among them still speak their native language. Recognizing its imminent loss, the Eastern Band of Cherokee are now taking extraordinary steps in a fight to revitalize the Cherokee language.

The Cherokee Indians were once the dominant power in what is now the Southeastern United States. This Emmy Award-winning film follows this Cherokee community as it comes to terms with a heritage that predates the United States by thousands of years.

Admission to Reel Appalachia is free and open to all.
