The Cherokee people have a rich history woven with survival, sacrifice, loss and triumph making our current nation 300,000 strong. We have always had strong education and government systems to perpetuate the welfare of our people. Like the reeds of ancestral Cherokee baskets this legacy has been woven through time

Established in 1963, the Cherokee National Historical Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created to present an authentic and multidimensional portrait of the Cherokee people in historical and contemporary times. 

Donation opportunities are temporarily suspended while the center undergoes organizational changes. Check back soon for support opportunities.

We are excited about our future as we honor our past. 

Working together, WE will perpetuate our rich Cherokee heritage
