Introducing myself and my journal: Through My Lens

Dell Hambleton
Posted August 12, 2014 from United States

About Me: Focusing my “lens” on Cherokee women’s issues allows me to not only explore my own lineage, but to inspire and incite tribal women to reach inside themselves to realize their strength, beauty and resilience. Writing and documentary film are the media I use. The Cherokee were originally a matriarchal society. That changed with European migration in the 1700s and early 1800s. My current work examines the return to the matriarchal tribal structure and the reasons and prophesies behind it. I am also committed to using my creative works to encourage women on this path of compassionate leadership.

My Passions: Documentary Film

My Challenges: Financial, My age

My Vision for the Future: To use my writing and filming skills to shine a light on Cherokee Women's issues

My Areas of Expertise: Writing, Photography, Videography

    Welcome to World Pulse, Dell.

    I am intrigued by your work with Cherokee women, as I own a home in the Cherokee National Forest, in an area that was part of The Trail of Tears. In fact, there is a current archaeological dig going on at the site of a fort that held the Cherokee as they were being forced off their lands. If there is any way that I can assist you in your efforts, please let me know. I can be found on World Pulse where you can message me.

    Your visions are one step closer to achievement when you network in such a strong group of empowered people. You are only one person, but you are smart enough to know that our power is exponential when combined with other powerful people.

    You are now a part of a thriving grassroots network of women leaders and supporters from more than 190 countries. See the Getting Started Guide to learn more about networking in our community:

    I look forward to hearing more of your voice in WorldPulse.

    Continue to be a blessing. Yvette Warren
