Cherokee Artist Directory
The Cherokee Artist Directory is an outgrowth of the Blue Ridge Heritage Intitiave partnerships. It draws inspiration from Cherokee artists who are willing to share their traditions more widely and builds on the 1993 Cherokee Speakers Bureau project created by the crafts cooperative, Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual. With this directory, many presenting organizations, schools, and other venues including the network of heritage trail sites and partners in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee, and northern Georgia will gain better access to authentic Cherokee artists. Artists hired through the directory will educate new audiences as they bring Cherokee perspectives to programs about Cherokee history and culture.
The Directory was published in 2001 by The Museum of the Cherokee Indian in collaboration with The North Carolina Arts Council and The Cultural Resources Division of The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.
