This is NOT a listing of powwows and museum events, but an examination of the traditional Calendar, the use and memory of which has pretty well faded except in isolated communities of the Southeast. Oral tradition tells that the calendar is really 22 different cycles, which are overlaid to form a complete picture of the influences on any given day, such as a birth date. While these overlapping calendars clearly derive from the same sources as the Olmec, Mayan and Aztec calendars (no surprise, since Cherokee oral history says our ancestors migrated northwards from and through those areas), there are significant differences of interpretation and symbolism that give a uniquely Cherokee perspective. The 2016 Cherokee Calendar includes names of the Months and Days shown in Cherokee, 20-Day cycle, 13-Day Bird Wind cycle, 260-Day Cycle, Seasonal Cycle, Lunar Cycles, Great Serpent Days (Eclipses), Visitations of the Long-Bodies (Meteor Showers), plus historical dates and references. The full-color calendar pages are printed on only one side, to prevent bleed-through and to make it easier for you to cut them out to display, if you choose.
