In preparation for the 67th annual Cherokee National Holiday, the tribe is seeking nominations for its esteemed National Treasure distinction. The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, May 14, at 5 p.m.

The honor of Cherokee National Treasure is bestowed upon Cherokee Nation citizens who have shown exceptional knowledge of Cherokee art and culture. Those selected actively work to preserve and revive traditional cultural practices that are in danger of being lost from generation to generation. The award was established in 1988 by the Cherokee Nation and Cherokee National Historical Society.

Nominations are accepted in the following categories: traditional foods, bow making, beadwork, basketry, painting, pottery, wood and stone carving, gig making, turtle shell making and flint knapping. Categories also include Cherokee language, blowgun making, flute making, textiles, graphic arts and quilting.

Selected honorees will be recognized during the 67th Annual Cherokee National Holiday.

The Cherokee National Holiday commemorates the signing of the Cherokee Nation Constitution in 1839, which re-established the tribe’s government in Indian Territory after forced removal from the Cherokees’ original homelands in the Southeast.
