Oconaluftee Indian Village on the Cherokee Indian Reservation


Your visit to Cherokee must include a visit to the Oconaluftee Indian Village, an authentic replica of an 18th century Cherokee community. Cherokee guides explain the history, culture and life style of their ancestors and answer questions as you pause to watch Cherokee artisans demonstrate their arts and crafts. You'll also see the replica of a 7-sided Council House and typical Cherokee homes as they were 250 years ago.

The village is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily, mid-May through late October. Group discounts are available.
