In this episode, we look at the life of Chief Tom Buffington and why he’s sometimes incorrectly referred to as “The Last Chief of the Cherokees”. We try to keep up with the Muskrats, a Cherokee racing family who eat, sleep, and breathe racing. We get to know Kelli Masters who as one of the first female professional sports agents has become a trailblazer and inspiration to young women everywhere. In our Cherokee Almanac, we explore the agency Cherokee had and continue to practice in their own health in the wake of disease epidemics.
