2014 RTR Riders with EBCI Principal Chief Michell Hicks.
Today was the 2014 RTR Sendoff Celebration at Kituwah Mound near Cherokee, NC.
I believe progress of the riders can be found on Facebook. I do not think any of the riders are using the blog this year. Sorry. Admin
The 2014 RTR Rider Send-Off will be held at Kituwah on May 30th at 4pm. Please come out and support this years riders.
I have had to suspend allowing new users to register. I have also disabled “comments” for now. On Monday we had 150 spam comments. When I blocked comments unless people were registered we had 127 “people” apply as registered users. Because of this I have stopped allowing “people” to register for user accounts for now. I will change back to the old policy next year as the time for the ride approaches. Hugh
The Cherokee One Feather had a very nice article about the RTR Ride.
Remember the Removal riders finish journey
What an profound experience riding into town square. We were greeted with open arms, proud tears of joy and loads of love.
The ceremony was emotional for all of us. We are so proud to be Cherokee.
Chi, Marvel , Yona & Hilary having fun
