Cherokee Indian Indian Reservation
"Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians"
The Eastern Band is one of three federally recognized Cherokee tribes, the others being the Cherokee Nation and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma. The Eastern Band members are primarily descended from Cherokee who did not participate in the march on the Trail of Tears to Oklahoma Territory, primarily owing to the foresight of Chief Yonaguska, and the help of his adopted Caucasian son, William Holland Thomas. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians still practice many of the original ceremonies, and many prominent Cherokee historians are affiliated with, or members of the Eastern Band.
Tsali (pronounced [ˈtsali]) opposed the removal, and remained in the Cherokee Homeland with a small group of Cherokee who formed a rebellious resistance against the United States to thwart the removal of the Cherokee on the Trail of Tears. Tsali was eventually captured, and was executed by the United States in exchange for the lives of the small band he protected — who remained in the Cherokee Homeland and became the modern Eastern Band.
The Museum of the Cherokee Indian hosts and exhibits an extensive collection of artifacts and items of historical and cultural interest, from the early Mississippian Period through modern times, related to the Cherokee Culture. The Cherokee Heritage Center displays historical artifacts related to the march of the Cherokee on the Trail of Tears and the development of Oklahoma Cherokee Culture.
Cherokee Indian Reservation in Cherokee, NC
"Beautiful Cherokee nation...I love this area."
We drove down into Cherokee to visit the Indian Reservation on our honeymoon. We took our daughter with us. Larry and I have been married before to each other, and we found each other again and decided to get married again.
It was a short trip but a lovely one and the weather was very nice.
Noel and myself have been here several times in the past, but this was Larry's first trip into this beautiful mountain area.
"Some of the beautiful trading posts located here"
Now if you like shopping, then this is the area for you. We enjoyed shopping and taking photos of the different attractions in and around the reservation. It is not the peak of tourist season so it was easy to get around here on this day. The last time I was here, it was bumper to bumper traffic and moving around was very hard.
"Where are all the "hot rods" going???"
We kept seeing all these old HOT RODS everywhere and couldn't imagine where they were going. Once we got to Pigeon Forge, TN..we found out..ROD RACE 2005...people and old cars were everywhere..

Cherokee is on the Cherokee Indian Reservation on the eastern side of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. It has a very interesting mix of mid-20th century kitch, Native American history and a dash of Vegas.
Cherokee is a really small town, but for lovers of old-style tourist destinations - campy motel signs, moccasin vendors, elaborate miniature golf sets, etc. - it is a gem. Aside from the camp, however, is a poignant story of one culture's stuggle for survival.
Cherokee's Oconaluftee Indian Village is a must see for anyone who wants to learn a little more about how the Cheorkee lived. It is a good way for kids to learn, too, but if they are younger than, say, 6, they might not feel like listening. We were in a group with several young children (5 and younger) and they were doing all sorts of other things - being a bit disruptive - so i wouldn't recommend it for them unless you tell them from the beginning that they need to listen and not run around.
The performace of "Unto these Hills" was a really good way to tie it all together. You are introduced to figures that were central to the Cherokee's removal and those who were able to stay.
Don't miss the Museum of the Cherokee Indian. Great museum.
We stayed at the Pageant Hills Motel. I thought it was fine for the money - clean & comfortable.
