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. Please support our heritage and ensure that our culture is preserved for generations to come.

We encourage you to stand with us in supporting this rich heritage and culture as many generations have walked before and many will follow.  Your generous contribution is vital to the continuation of our mission to preserve, promote, and teach Cherokee history and culture, and will help us continue to share our history with thousands of children and adults who visit the Cherokee Heritage Center each year.

We are excited about our future as we honor our past. Please take a few moments to make your contribution to the Cherokee Heritage Center.

Working together, WE will perpetuate our rich Cherokee heritage
