We completed our first R&D and mini-production trip in March, 2016 while doing research at the Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah, OK. The purpose of the trip was to conduct research at the Cherokee Heritage Center and to film interviews and additional footage to be used for a short “work-in-progress” promotional trailer for additional fundraising. In addition, the interviews and location filming will be used in the completed documentary.
