Cherokee - Oconaluftee Indian Village

218 Drama Road
828-497-2111

As you enter the soft trails of the village, it's no longer the 21st century: you're immediately transported to the 1760s. You won't need your robotic-voiced GPS here. The faint tang of wood smoke wafts by as you are led by a Cherokee cultural expert on an interactive journey through Cherokee lifestyle and history. Your guide will show you the way through the winding paths, flanked with traditional Cherokee dwellings, work areas, and sacred ritual sites. Delight in cultural dances amid the swaying oaks and sycamores. As you wander, interact with villagers as they hull canoes, sculpt pottery and masks, weave baskets, and fashion beadwork. Watch as a village prepares for war. Be amazed by a blowgun demonstration. Oconaluftee Indian Village is much more than just a place; it's living history.

It’s a very cool experience that everyone should do at least once if you’re in the area. It’s obvious that the staff cares very much about educating others about and preserving the Cherokee heritage. It’s a little pricey for what it is, but at least the money goes to a good calls which is maintaining this piece of Cherokee heritage.

If it wasn't so expensive I would have given 5 stars.
