Cherokee tribe gets first-ever permit to gather plants in Great Smoky Mountains NP

CHEROKEE – Eastern Band of Cherokee Indian members might be picking sochan for dinner this week in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park – the first time in the park’s 85-year history.


The right to harvest sochan – a bitter spring green part of the traditional Cherokee culture and diet – comes after the historic signing of an agreement March 25 at the Oconaluftee Visitor Center by Smokies Superintendent Cassius Cash and Cherokee Principal Chief Richard Sneed.
