14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Hand Woven Baskets, Cherokee, North Carolina

Sustainable travel means supporting the people who live there. Such support involves understanding their story. These baskets were hand-woven by individuals of Cherokee descent at the Oconaluftee Indian Village. Two hundred years ago, their ancestors endured great hardship. Their ancestors are my ancestors, too.
