Event description
Join the Moravian Historical Society virtually to learn about the remarkable life and works of Anna Kliest!

About this Event

Anna Rosina Kliest Gambold was an early American botanist whose published works still serve as foundational knowledge for studying native plants of northern Georgia. Her work as a Moravian missionary among the Cherokees still resonates today. Anna Rosina's mission diaries provide insight into the tradition of Cherokee healers whose work has been threatened over centuries of forced removal, family separation, and cultural loss.

So how did this Bethlehem-born and raised Moravian come to live among the Cherokees? Join Victoria Starbuck, the Moravian Historical Society's Collections Assistant and Education Coordinator, to learn about the life and legacy of Anna Rosina Kliest Gambold.
