Cherokee History

From the Smokey Moutnain News

Cherokee Indians attach special spiritual meanings, rooted in their traditional culture, to the mountains and valleys of the Great Smoky Mountains. Through a unique series of exhibits to be unveiled during a public ceremony, visitors will have an opportunity to learn about how these ancient mountains have affected Cherokee stories and beliefs for hundreds of years.

The event will be held on April 21 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. adjacent to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

My favorite class in college was on the Southeastern Indians from 1000-1500AD. They invented the barbeque and the front porch 🙂

Eventually the project will tie into a proposed recreational greenway and heritage trail and continue along the Oconaluftee River in Cherokee.
