The Center for Rural Development presents the Warriors of AniKituhwa from the Museum of the Cherokee Indian on Thursday, March 21, at 7 p.m. for a special evening performance for the general public.

Prior to the performance, at 6;30 p.m., the group will host an art display and demonstration of native arts and crafts in The Center’s front lobby.

The Warriors of the AniKituhwa bring to life the Cherokee War Dance and Eagle Trail Dance, as described by Lt. Henry Timberlake in 1762. They also perform Cherokee social dances, including the Bear Dance, Beaver Hunting Dance, and Friendship Dance and talk about the significance of the dances, their clothing, and Cherokee history and culture.

The dance group has been designated as the official cultural ambassadors by the Tribal Council of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and sponsored by the Museum of the Cherokee Indian. 

General admission tickets are $6 (plus taxes/fees) per person  (adult or child).

 

The Warriors of AniKituhwa performance is brought to The Center through a grant received from South Arts Traditional Touring grant program, which promotes public awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the traditional arts in the South. www.southarts.org
