Cherokee Nation to Disperse Rare, Traditional Seeds

The Cherokee Nation is giving seeds from its limited supply of seed bank inventory to tribal citizens interested in growing traditional Cherokee crops.

The Cherokee Nation keeps an inventory of seeds from rare breeds of corn, beans, squash, gourds, Trail of Tears beads and tobacco, traditionally used for Cherokee customs. The seeds distributed are generally not available in stores.

Citizens are limited to two varieties. To get the seeds, citizens can either make an appointment to pick them up or email their request to Mark Dunham at mark-dunham@cherokee.org or Pat Gwin at pgwin@cherokee.org to have them sent by mail. Individuals must include a copy of his or her Cherokee Nation tribal citizenship card, proof of age and address.
