The Wee Warriors day care program of Eminence Elementary School welcomed a real warrior last week.
Sam McAfee — a Blue Clan member of the Overhill Tribe of the Cherokee Nation — explained tribal life to the children using authentic accoutrements as visual aids. McAfee got their complete attention when he held up a wide leathery piece and showed it around the room. “This is the armband that I wear when I dance,” he said. “It’s made of rattlesnake.”
