Kituwah: The Mother Town Returns

Record #:
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.
