|Besides attending the play Nanyehi - Beloved Woman of the Cherokee as posted below. I had the opportunity to eat lunch and then attend the play with David Hampton and 5 other descendants of Nancy Ward, who had come from Oklahoma, Texas, and Florida. It was wonderful to meet and be with them. There were 11 descendants at the play. Before the play started, we had the honor of standing and being introduced by Becky Hobbs.|
David is one of the foremost Cherokee researchers in the country and has been very kind and helpful in my attempts at research. His book Cherokee Mixed Bloods has been invaluable to me.
It was a real honor to be with David and the other Nancy Ward descendants.
As I mentioned in other posts, I knew I was part Cherokee and my Mother was born in Indian Territory in Oklahoma, but I had no idea (nor did she, I'm sure) that I was descended from Nancy Ward and other famous Cherokee. I am extremely delighted to have found out through my research.
