For five days, participants will experience the spirituality of the Cherokee People with Native American presenters. The legends, ceremonies, history, culture and food will slowly reveal the depth of Cherokee spirituality and offer participants a background to reflect on their own expression of spiritual growth. The times of prayer and theological reflection will integrate the learning with the participant’s own life experiences.

The event is sponsored by the Catholic Committee of Appalachia and the Appalachian Ministries Education Resource Center.
