Event Description

Our friends and neighbors, the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians, will share with our visiting cultural ambassadors and festival attendees the unique experience, history, and endurance of the Cherokee people. Cherokee culture and traditions are among the very richest offerings Western Carolina has to share with the world.

Transportation is not included. Enrolled Members of the Eastern Band are admitted at no charge.  Please call Cherokee Programs Coordinator Lisa Spring Wilnoty for more information at 828-452-2997.
