The Center consists of a living history Cherokee village, a museum, and small township of historical buildings. Dedicated to the perservation of Cherokee culture and history, it is one of the most widely visited Native American sites in Oklahoma.

Eli Nofire, respected Cherokee elder employed with the Heritage Center for years, the person who formed the Heritage Singers, the man who managed Adams Corner, and the brother of Sam Nofire, suffered a stroke last year. He has made astounding progress in his recovery, has enjoyed time at home with his wife Mary (who we also adore), practiced writing Cherokee as part of his recovery and rehabilitation. Eli speaks, reads, and writes fluent Cherokee, and is one of the greatest cultural ambassadors that we have. It is our pleasure to announce that he wil likely be at the Gospel Sing tomorrow! Eli, we look forward to seeing you!
