Organizers encourage those interested in the effects of continued destruction of mountain landscapes and learning more about the native ways of understanding these issues to attend.

Presentations include movies, speakers, discussions and concerts, with topics ranging from the human connection to the land to Cherokee language. Several programs this year have a focus on Cherokee issues.

Early registration is available through Sept. 28 for $75 and then increases to $125. Registration is available online. rootedinthemtns.wcu.edu or 828.227.3926.
