Using cutting edge archaeological methods, STEM, and archival research a group of community activists and Cherokee leaders work to rescue a historic property from the arsonist's flames and identify the graves of the Cherokee who died there on the Trail of Tears. Filming for DIGADOHI began in November of 2017 at archaeological and historic sites along the route from Cherokee homelands in the East, to Oklahoma. The film chronicles a year of those investigations and weaves the family stories - European, African, and Native - that were unearthed there into the national story of America. Ultimately The Cherokee story is one of survival and passing on a living culture.
