Gadugi is Cherokee for "Everyone Paddles." It also means if you have the chance to help someone, help them. In the Cherokee Nation, there are 'gadugi' events organized in every season of the year. People come together to build a home, for instance, refit an existing home for a disabled soldier or elder, dig a well, even lay a pipeline to bring water to a whole community. All volunteer and a traditional service everyone is honored to perform. "Everybody paddles." Gadugi! means everybody paddles NOW!
