Cherokee Nation Celebrating Grand Opening of National Research Center in Tahlequah
The Cherokee Nation is celebrating the grand opening of their new National Research Center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. The nation's state-of-the-art facility will provide the public access to cultural collections, genealogy services, archives, as well as artifacts from the 1700s through present day.
Just over a year ago, the items were declared to be in a state of emergency due to aging infrastructure and the need for updated environmental controls necessary for proper preservation.
Thanks to efforts made through the Cherokee Heritage Act of 2020, the public will be able to explore the Cherokee National Research Center and experience firsthand some of the tribe’s most treasured items.
Details may be found in an article by Cassidy Mudd and published in the KTUL web site at: https://bit.ly/3pDCKK9.
[Thanks to Dick Eastman for this heads up.]
