The Warriors of AniKituhwa from the Museum of the Cherokee Indian

School Time Audience:  Grades K–8
Public Audience:  All ages

Friday, March 22, 2019—10:00 a.m.

The Warriors of AniKituhwa are cultural ambassadors for the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, with the Museum of the Cherokee Indian as their sponsor.

This dance group brings to life the Cherokee War Dance and Eagle Tail Dance as described by Lt. Henry Timberlake in 1762. They are designated as official cultural ambassadors by the Tribal Council of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and are sponsored by the Museum of the Cherokee Indian. They have performed at Colonial Williamsburg, the National Museum of the American Indian, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, Berlin, Montreal, and throughout the Southeast.

The War Dance was used not only when men went to war, but also when meeting with other nations for diplomacy and peace, and within the Cherokee nation was also used to raise money for people in need. It conveys the strength of the Cherokee nation.

The Warriors of AniKituhwa also perform Cherokee social dances, including the Bear Dance, Beaver Hunting Dance, and Friendship Dance. They talk about the significance of the dances, their clothing, and Cherokee history and culture. They can provide living history demonstrations and programs in flute, storytelling, Cherokee language, beadwork, quillwork, and more.
