The oldest and leading Native American arts cooperative in the United States. If you’re seeking authentic Cherokee arts and crafts, you’ve come to the largest home for it east of the Mississippi. Be it weaponry, the decorative beauty of beadwork, the intricate skill of finger weaving, or the sublime self-expression of wood and stone carving, it’s here, waiting to go home with you.

As you touch the smooth wood of the dramatic masks used in traditional dance rituals or the cool clay of the wedding jugs, you are reminded of the power of your own hands. Remember? Your fingers can do a lot more than navigate an iPhone touch screen or flip channels on a remote control. No reality TV here; this is a refreshing reality of a time past, preserved and carried on in the hands of present-day Cherokee craftsmen.
