At the Oconaluftee Indian Village there is much to see: Over two centuries of tradition, living on through the modern-day Cherokee.
Watch as ropes of clay are molded into pots and bowls, watch as a canoe is built with fire and ax. View corn grinding, and chipping flint into arrowheads.
Presented by the non-profit Cherokee Historical Association, the Oconaluftee Indian Village is a glimpse of the past. Here you will see the model of a Cherokee village from over 225 years ago!
Cherokee guides in native costume will explain
their history, the culture and life-style of their ancestors, and
answer your questions. All this while pausing to watch
Cherokee demonstrate their arts and crafts.
This 18th century replica of a Cherokee community contains
a replica of a 7-sided Council House and typical homes as they were 250 years ago.
