EPISODE 606

In this episode, we meet Cherokee Nation citizen Kennith Hicks, a retired Army veteran with numerous tours of Afghanistan and Iraq, who has made it his mission to help fellow veterans return to civilian life and heal at home. Racecar driver Drake Long might only be 16 years old but with his family’s support, his skills on the track prove far beyond his years. Ahniwake Rose worked for nearly 15 years in Washington D.C. on behalf of Native American tribes. Now, she’s returned to Oklahoma to continue her work creating a more equitable future for all. In our Cherokee Almanac, we explore the concept of clan law. Before we had written laws, justice was determined through a consensus of our tribe’s clan structure. In this Cherokee Almanac, we take a look at Cherokee systems of justice and their evolution over time.
