Native American culture
Join us as Stan Long, Principal Chief of The Cherokee Tribe of Northeast Alabama, discusses the history of the Cherokee tribe in Alabama.

The Cherokee Tribe of Northeast Alabama is one of nine tribes recognized by the State of Alabama with representation on the Alabama Indian Affairs Commission. Alabama is rich in Cherokee history, including some of the first written Cherokee laws being enacted in Alabama. Several of the earliest Cherokee delegations to Washington D.C. included Alabama Cherokees. Chief Long is a licensed certified Social Worker currently working with the Huntsville City Schools as a Behavior Intervention Specialist. Wednesday, October 27, noon.
