This past weekend several of the Scouts from Boy Scout Troop 585 took a journey back to the beginning with a visit to The Cherokee Indian Reservation in Cherokee, North Carolina.

During their weekend adventure they worked on requirements for Rank Advancement, visited the Oconaluftee Indian Village, took in the Outdoor Drama “Unto These Hills”, along with visiting with several Indians at the campground during a Pow Wow. Also, several of the boys earned their Indian Lore Merit Badge while there.
