    How times have changed so much. I wish iij could sit down and hear the old stories told down the line. The truth and not dummed down history through school controlled by the pos gov.

    Seems like the government wants alot of stuff to disappear. Like the sasquatch. . But there is proof it exist heavily and that's there some portals to the spiritual world. The government and media has lied to us but it is coming out. I love hickory smoked meat. Would probably love this. Thanks for sharing.

    I have even talked via phone to the Chief in Oklahoma. It is a shame that somebody doesn’t start a program of genealogy while some of the older people are still alive.
    Recipes couldn’t hurt either. ?

    Sugar is a colonial food just like white rice, so that makes this recipe a fake traditional food. The original ingredients must pre-date european meddling is you want to convince me this is a native "tradicion".

    I have tried to find my great grandmother who was adopted by white family. Her adopted name was Mary Fuqua, but don't know her cherokee name. I want to find my Cherokee family. My mother was born in Maryville, Tennessee.

    Who does the closed captioning on these videos? Every time she said Cherokee it would caption Turkey.

    The squirrels eat all of hickory nuts before they fall. I just eat the squirrels.

    Are acorns ever used in kanuchi? Acorns are a lot of work to prepare, but plentiful.
