RiverLink adds second Cherokee presentation

Due to its popularity the first time around, RiverLink's Fall Salon Series continues on Nov. 13 with an encore presentation by Barbara Duncan, Ph.D., Museum of the Cherokee Indian, and the Cherokee Friends. From 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the RiverLink office at 170 Lyman Street in the River Arts District, the group will speak about the Cherokees' relationship to rivers, particularly the French Broad, and will share some reproductions of Cherokee artifacts including pottery and ancient cloth.

The Cherokee Friends are cultural specialists from the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, and will provide flute music and storytelling. Duncan and the Cherokee Friends will participate in questions and answers from the audience. Barbara Duncan has a Ph.D. in Folklore and has written award winning books about Cherokee history and culture, and has received the Brown Hudson Award from the North Carolina Folklore Society and the Cherokee Phoenix Award. 

While the event is free, registration is required and available here:
