Ms. Crowe is also the Coordinator for the Eastern Cherokee Organization (ECO) in Cherokee, NC, and a Southeast Regional Representative for the Indigenous Environmental Network.

Land sovereignty is a meaningful way of life for Indigenous Peoples like the Cherokee, who are traditional stewards of the land and seek to promote an enduring relationship with their traditional territories.
