Season 8, EPISODE 10
In this episode, we look back at the administration of Principal Chief Ross Swimmer and learn how he helped lay the groundwork for the Cherokee Nation we know today. Coleman Proctor is not just any rodeo cowboy, he’s a six-time qualifier for the National Finals Rodeo. We saddle up and watch him work to improve his skills for a shot at a world championship title. What it means to be Cherokee can differ from person to person. We look at the history, ideals and values that define Cherokee Nation and how our tribe continues to thrive while maintaining its strong identity. In our Cherokee Almanac, we explore the complicated and even devastating effects Oklahoma statehood had on Cherokee Nation.
