Marshall has researched and mapped historic trails in the southeast for more than forty years, and the Cherokee Preservation Foundation has funded research for Cherokee trails research in western North Carolina for the last two years. According to Marshall, the early Indian trails evolved as the result of thousands of years of Native Americans’ interactions with animals, tribal migration, relocations, population shifts, and lifestyle changes due to European contact and trade.
