The late Crosslin Smith was a spiritual leader and healer in Cherokee Nation. As the grandson of Cherokee traditionalist Redbird Smith, Crosslin kept “the old ways” burning into the 21st century. Frequently invited to address the Cherokee people at important events, Crosslin led in prayers and teachings, bridging the ancestral past to Cherokee Nation today. Before his passing in February 2024, Crosslin and his family assisted in creating an exhibit about his life and work. “Crosslin Smith: The Healer’s Journey” includes pieces demonstrating his pride of military service and commitment to education. It also includes his books and objects demonstrating Crosslin’s commitment to keeping Cherokee traditional spirituality alive for future generations.
