TRINITY - Sheryll Kremer had always heard tales about her Cherokee ancestors. Her mother had traced family roots back about a century to a union between a Cherokee woman and German man in rural South Carolina.

And Kremer, 51, says she's always been proud of her American Indian heritage.

So, last January, when Kremer learned about a historical lecture hosted by an American Indian group known as Spirit People, she decided to take part.

And it's changed her life, she says.

Kremer started attending the group's monthly meetings. And in January, became a member.
