From the minutes of the Cherokee Nation Community Association’s February 26, 2016, meeting of the Board of Directors: “The Capital City Cherokee Community has successfully satisfied the requirements as outlined in [CNCA] Bylaws. Therefore, Capital City Cherokee Community is acknowledged by the Cherokee Nation Community Association (CNCA) as a Chaptered Organization.”
In addition to conducting community business, members enjoyed a Cherokee Nation Community & Culture Outreach (CCO) training video on “Cherokee Traditional Plants” and Cherokee growing/cultivation cycles, which includes discussion on the Cherokee Nation seed bank, Cherokee “heirloom” seeds, GMO seeds, vegetables/plants important to the Cherokees, etc.
The Mid-Atlantic Region was hit with a record-breaking blizzard in January this year. Please enjoy some ot the pictures taken by CCCC members located around the DMV to document this historic event!
On June 20, 2015, we held a picnic for our summer general meeting. Cherokee National Treasure Tommy Wildcat joined us to provide our gathering’s special music. There was plenty of great food and fellowship all around!
