Warriors of Anikituhwa -A Day of Cherokee History and Culture
July 17 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Warriors of Anikituhwa, official cultural ambassadors of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, utilize the
art forms of storytelling and dance to revitalize and increase understanding of traditional Cherokee culture in
the Appalachian region and beyond. In the Cherokee language, Ani-Kituhwa-gi means the people of Kituwa,
the ancestral site along the Tuckasegee River that the Cherokee know as their original town and sacred mound.
The Warriors have danced at cultural events, museums, schools, universities, and historic sites, including
Colonial Williamsburg, the Museum of the American Indian, and the Queen of England’s London New Year’s
Day Parade, which marked the first visit of a Cherokee delegation to England since 1762.
