2023 Rivercane Gathering

April 4-7, 2023

Join us for the 1st Annual Rivercane Gathering, co-hosted by the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma and the US Forest Service. The goal of the Rivercane Gathering is to bring together tribes, native artisans, traditional knowledge holders, scientists, land managers, and other stakeholders to share in two-way learning about the current state of knowledge for rivercane in the southern United States.

We are excited to offer the Rivercane Gathering as an in-person meeting this year! If you are experiencing any Covid symptoms such as fever, body aches, coughing, nausea, loss of taste or smell, and/or other symptoms, please refrain from coming to the event. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
