This article looks at religious life in the North Carolina interior and suggests how religion influenced the North Carolina Regulator Movement, a loosely organized protest movement of settlers in the North Carolina backcountry during the 1760s and early 1770s that began as a peaceful expression of the settlers' discontent over political and economic conditions and developed into a series of increasingly violent mob actions that ended with a pitched battle between the Regulators and militia led by the colonial governor.
Kituwah, located in the Tuckaseegee River valley in western North Carolina, is a sacred place of great religious importance to Cherokee Indians. In the early 1820s, the Cherokees lost Kituwah to the United States government, but in 1996, they had the opportunity to reacquire the town. Today, the site celebrates traditional and current Cherokee culture as well as the town's history.
