Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma Community Preview Screening Set
September 4 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Searching for Sequoyah will premiere at its first Cherokee community screening as part of the Cherokee Nation’s 69th Cherokee National Holiday over this coming Labor Day weekend. This year’s celebration focuses on Cherokee language & the bicentennial of Sequoyah’s syllabary, completed in 1821. The timing could not be more appropriate. The theme of the event is “Cultivating Our Culture: Language. Literacy. Lifeways.” Traditionally, the Cherokee National Holiday draws more than 100,000 visitors from around the world to the capital of the Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on Labor Day weekend. Since COVID-19 continues to remain a threat, the Cherokee Nation will be hosting a hybrid celebration featuring both virtual and limited in-person events. Searching for Sequoyah will be screened at the 2nd Annual Drive-In Movie Nights event at One Fire Field in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on Friday, September 3rd and Saturday, September 4th at dusk. This event was a tremendous success last year. Cherokee families and friends safely experienced the exclusive content on our 100′ big screen in stunning high resolution.
