Cherokee Athletes Exhibit Reception

Only one month remains to view the highly-acclaimed Cherokee Athletes exhibit at the Cherokee Heritage Center. On April 25, the exhibit will be removed to make way for the 34th Annual Trail of Tears Art Show and Sale.

Like most athletic events, the exhibit will end with a closing ceremony Saturday, April 2, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Cherokee Heritage Center. All who participated in and contributed to this successful exhibit are invited to attend the ceremony to enjoy refreshments and a final look at the history of Cherokee athleticism.

From the brutal origins of stickball to modern athletics events, sports have played a prominent role in Cherokee culture. The Cherokee Athletes exhibit showcases the past and present, and pays tribute to the many Cherokee athletes who helped shape the world of sports.

For more information on the Cherokee Athletes exhibit and reception, call the Cherokee Heritage Center at (918) 456-6007, toll free at (888) 999-6007, or e-mail Mickel Yantz, curator at exhibits@cherokeeheritage.org.
