Lunch & Learn: Cherokee Storytelling

Event date: 
Wednesday, July 17, 2019 - 12:00pm - 1:30pm

A co-presentation with Appalachian State University faculty and the Museum of the Cherokee Indian

The Warriors of Anikituhwa, official cultural ambassadors of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, will present this remarkable workshop featuring Cherokee history through storytelling. The Warriors have presented at cultural events, museums, schools, universities, and historic sites including Colonial Williamsburg, the Museum of the American Indian, and the Queen of England’s London New Year’s Day Parade, which marked the first visit of a Cherokee delegation to England since 1762.

At 3 p.m., participants are invited to gather at Valborg Theatre (across from the Turchin Center Lecture Hall) for a demonstration of traditional Cherokee social dances.
