A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1948, the Museum of the Cherokee People is one of the longest-operating tribal museums in the country. Located in Cherokee, North Carolina on the Qualla Boundary, the tribal museum of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians shares the history, culture, and stories of the Cherokee people through its exhibitions, collections, and programs.
The Museum brings life to the world's greatest collection of Cherokee artifacts and treasures. Here is a story and telling that is not stuffy, but stirring. So come. Join in the circle. The story is about to begin.
Be sure to stop in at the Museum's Store where you will find works of art by Cherokee artists, as well as books, clothing and household items.
