The Season 4 premiere of “Osiyo, Voices of the Cherokee People” brings all-new stories of Cherokee people, culture, and history.
In this episode, we venture deep into Cherokee Country to visit the Foreman family and learn how these folks fell in love with rodeo and the cowboy way of life. Then, OsiyoTV gets in the ring with The Man They Call Fuel, a Cherokee professional wrestler whose enthusiasm is rivaled only by his drive to help others. Cherokee National Treasure Martha Berry then shares how a desire to reconnect with her heritage led to helping recover the nearly lost art of Southeastern-style beadwork.
We also look at the history of Springplace Mission, the first mission of its kind established to educate Cherokees, and get back to language basics in a new set of “Let’s Talk Cherokee” language lessons.
