Mark and Sherry FinchumCherokee educators, Mark and Sherry Finchum, will use numerous artifacts and photos to describe the roles of Cherokee women and men in 18th century Cherokee society. This was a time when men were known as the hunters and warriors, both occupations involving death; women were responsible for the gardens and families, two aspects of society associated with life. Among the items they will display and discuss will be rivercane baskets, pottery, fingerwoven belts, deer and buffalo hides, tomahawks, and a blowgun.
