Hi Scareme, there are some in the mountains of NC and TN, but they are mostly Cherokee oriented, so I'm not sure if they would be interested in her work. we are descended from a west coat tribe ( Paiute ) my dad was originally from Nevada. Lauren does all sorts of art, but she loved the idea of touching on the American Indian ancestry. We used to go to Oklahoma a lot when I was a kid. Went to Fort Sill and all sorts of reserves out there. You live in a very neat part of the country for experience Native American culture!
