Bell Water Project

Clip | 3m

When Wilma began working for the Cherokee Nation, one of her first jobs was to bring water to a small town. She successfully organized an entire community to complete the ambitious task themselves as a self-help project. She identified the money for the materials and then worked alongside them. Wilma felt the success of the project was symbolic of the revitalization of the entire Cherokee Nation.
