The Cherokees are not only a people of the past, but a people of the present and future. The history of the Cherokee Nation is the untold story of a state and a nation. From the emotional depths of the Trail of Tears to the wonders of Sequoyah's unique syllabary, the Cherokee Nation has flourished through its ability to face adversity, survive, adapt, prosper, and excel.

Our people have constantly reshaped and renewed themselves in order to not merely survive, but to attain the highest possible levels of achievement. We are a Nation dedicated to the betterment of our people and the creation of a legacy for our children.

Cherokee spiritual leader Redbird Smith wrote, “The fires kept burning are merely emblematic of the greater Fire, the greater Light, the Great Spirit. I realize now as never before it is not only for the Cherokees, but for all mankind.”
