Cherokee exhibit at Great Smokies
Oconaluftee Visitor Center ( in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is hosting "Understanding our Past, Shaping our Future," on view from April 26th through May 28th.  The exhibit focuses on Cherokee language and culture, using sound recordings as the basis for presenting a coherent story in words and text.  "Understanding our Past, Shaping our Future" was designed to include community input as a way to develop its content.  A community team held monthly discussions to develop the ideas and images that would make up the exhibit.  Major themes include Cherokee Homeland, Heritage Sites, Tourism, Family, and Community Celebrations.  The touring exhibit is sponsored by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in partnership with Cherokee Central Schools, Southwestern Community College, and Western Carolina University.  Funding was provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. There will be a special exhibit PREVIEW on Friday, April 25th from 6 until 7 pm.  For more information, contact:
