Cherokee Seeds - Not for White People

As soon as I saw the headline, I was interested:
Cherokee seed project sows respect for the past, hope for the future

As an avid gardener who has a thing for growing heirloom plants developed over the centuries by Native Americans, I instantly wanted some Cherokee seeds.

Alas, I was born into the wrong demographic:
The Cherokee Indians are preserving the roots of their heritage with a program that allows officially recognized members of the tribe to access seeds that are unique to the Cherokee Nation.
Okay, then.  Guess I'll stick with the seeds I can get from nativeseeds.org
