Under the glow of summer stars, the Cherokee story comes to life. Performed in our 2,000 seat outdoor amphitheater, Unto These Hills is the family show too large for any screen.

This is a must see in Cherokee! Our entire family enjoyed the drama. It is first rate. It is the story of the Cherokee Trail of Tears.

Wonderful place to visit. We catch their show at least twice a year. It is a drama about Indians and the past. It has some indian arts and crafts.
