Presentations include movies, speakers, discussions and concerts, with topics ranging from the human connection to the land to Cherokee language. Several programs this year have a focus on Cherokee issues.

Early registration is available through Sept. 28 for $75 and then increases to $125. Registration is available online. rootedinthemtns.wcu.edu or 828.227.3926.
