On Saturday, December 3, 2022, the Museum of the Cherokee Indian in Cherokee, NC will join tribal museums and cultural centers across Indian Country in the very first Tribal Museums Day, organized by the Association on American Indian Affairs. Visitors are invited to enjoy free admission to the Museum during its regular hours of 9am-5pm and support Native artists this holiday season in the Museum Store.
From the Association on American Indian Affairs: “The Association’s vision is to create a world where diverse Native cultures and values are lived, protected and respected. Tribal Museums Day will bring attention to our diverse Nations and cultures, stimulate tourism, and grow Tribal economies. Tribal Museums Day will also support the vision and mission of each Tribal Museum by re-educating the public that our Nations are the primary experts of Indigenous histories, knowledge, cultures, lifeways and values.”
