Cherokee Community of North Texas (CCNT)
October 9, 2011
Doug and I drove to the American Airlines Training Center near DFW for the annual meeting of the CCNT. It was raining and I believe it had an affect on the attendance, but we still had a reasonable turnout.
Gayle Samuels gave an excellent review of the week spent in the Community Organization Training and Technical Assistance (COTTA) Program. This involves volunteerism and funding of native arts in the fourteen communities in the Cherokee Nation. She showed slides of various artisans with their creations and the works are quite beautiful.
