Cherokee Corn Ceremony

For the Cherokee this was a time when people were to forgive debts, grudges, adultery, and all crimes ( with the exception of murder). It began in July and ended in August. It lasted for 8 days in important towns and for 4 days in smaller towns. The Cherokee celebrated by celebrating the harvest and renewal of life,  telling tribes' history, and relighting the council fire.
