This project strengthened the learning of elementary and middle school students and showed them how to help supply food to their community as well as their family.
UCAN American Indian Resources, Inc. Web Maintenance and Community Resources Outreach
Hosting the herb walk and improving our website is allowing us to make the community aware of the benefits and beauty of what is growing in their own yards. These events help us to reach out to our community and others in such a way that it not only helps them to be more aware of what nature has available to them but to also help them reach a better understanding of what it means to be Cherokee and what our tribe is truly about.
