PARK HILL – The Cherokee Heritage Center on June 9 will open its “Cherokee Recollections: The Pocahontas Club” exhibit that will run through Aug. 4 in the Special Exhibit Gallery.

According to the CHC, visitors to the exhibit can learn of the commitment to Cherokee communities and education that has guided members of the Indian Women’s Pocahontas Club for more than a century.

Club officials said Indian Women’s Pocahontas Club was established in June 1899 in Owalla, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) in the Cherokee Nation’s Cooweescoowee District. It’s one of the oldest clubs in the state and works to continue Indian welfare and education.

A grand opening for the exhibit is set for 6:30 p.m. on June 19 at the CHC’s Adam’s Corner Rural Village, which features a general store, school, church, different types of houses and a large open area for outdoor gatherings.
