Cherokee craft traditions to be featured, demonstrated

Written by 

Cherokee basket artist Betty Maney and Western Carolina University crafts scholar Anna Fariello will host a program entitled “From the Hands of our Elders: Cherokee Traditions” at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 in the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva. 

This program will expand upon the themes of the WCU public history student exhibit, “Weaving a Way: A Story of Cultural Preservation,” which is on display at the library, just inside the doors leading from the atrium. The exhibit “Cherokee Traditions” is part of the larger “Journey Stories” project, which includes a Smithsonian exhibit on view at the Mountain Heritage Center at WCU, now through Nov. 9.
