Cherokee North Carolina

The Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians is located in an area of the Cherokee Mountains. With many museums, out door dramas, and the Native American village there is always something to do in the area. The Cherokee website is definitely worth a look and has many cultural teachings on the website.
