PARK HILL – The Cherokee Heritage Center has announced a new exhibit, “Earth Shakers: The Influence of Cherokee Women,” is coming to the CHC museum May 11 – Aug. 3.

The exhibit will include visual arts made by eastern and western Cherokee women artists and will highlight the accomplishments of Cherokee women throughout history.

“The show will explore gender roles being equal and complimentary to one another and how those roles may be changing over time, matrilineal societies as models that work and how Cherokee women embrace new material and technologies,” said CHC Museum Curator Callie Chunestudy. She added that the exhibition traces how Cherokee women embed Cherokee cultural knowledge, even in experimental new genres and how that knowledge is shared across generations.

The Cherokee Heritage is located at 21192 S. Keeler Drive in Park Hill. For more information, call 918-456-6007 or toll free at 888-999-6007.
