Generally a parking brake system would be the parking brake lever (either a hand activated lever with a ratcheting lock and release lever, or a foot brake pedal with a ratcheting mechanism that releases when pushed to its maximum.), cables continuing from the parking brake lever to the rear drums, and the parts inside of the standard rear drum brake that are activated by pulling the cables. This system is used to prevent a car from moving when parked on an incline, or to prevent the transmission from jamming in Park which can happen when towing a load or parking a heavy vehicle on a hill.
There should be a parking brake lever above the parking brake pedal that you pull to disengage the parking brake.

You will need to remove the rear rotors in order to access the parking brake adjustment. Chances are the parking brakes are completely worn down, and the rotors will need to be replaced. The 2000-2001 Tahoes are notorious for sticking parking brakes. The Tahoe utilizes a drum style brake pad located inside the hat of the rear rotors. There is a fairly tight tolerance between the parking brake and the drum portion of the inside of the rotor. There is a cogged nut that can be spun to adjust the diameter of the parking brake assembly. The following is likely the cause of premature parking brake failure. The driver side has a lever located on the inner part of the brake assembly. On the driver side the lever has a protrusion that can get stuck against the back of the brake assembly when actuated. The protrusion serves no purpose, and there is a Chevy TSB that recommends grinding it off.
