TAHLEQUAH – In preparation for the 67th annual Cherokee National Holiday, the Cherokee Nation is seeking nominations for its Cherokee National Treasure distinction.
The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. on May 14.
The honor of Cherokee National Treasure is bestowed upon CN citizens who have shown exceptional knowledge of Cherokee art and culture. Those selected 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 CN and Cherokee National Historical Society.
