    Plants and the Cherokee - DVD
    "Plants and the Cherokee" tells the story about the relationship between the Cherokee and the plants that are a part of their world. The close cultural connection to plants is conveyed in the first half of this video using vivid imagery of the land and people, the sounds of nature, and the sounds of the Cherokee, including their native language, their stories, and their music. The second half of the video is devoted to the special stories of seven plants representative of the over 800 kinds of plants used for food, clothing, housing, or medicine. Each of these stories first takes a close look at the plant as it lives in the natural world, then explores the way in which the Cherokee people used and appreciated it.
