Gadugi Scholars Tour Mission on Qualla Boundary

On Friday, October 9 Gadugi scholars were treated to a tour of the Keener cabin and the old Methodist mission on the Qualla Boundary. We learned about the Reverend Keener and his family, as well as the small school they operated for the Eastern Cherokee. We were treated to a tour of the new church as well, and saw numerous examples of syncretism in the sanctuary.Great thanks to the folks at Cherokee United Methodist for their knowledge and hospitality.
