Abstract:
The traditional arts and crafts of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee people, originally functional or ritual in use, are attractive to modern peoples for their fine quality and decorativeness. They are valued not only for their beauty but because they embody the Cherokee traditions. A major force in the continuation and appreciation of the traditional crafts of the Eastern Band has been the Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual, a craftpersons' cooperative in the town of Cherokee under the management of Betty DuPree.
