Oconaluftee Indian Village is a re-creation of an 18th-century Cherokee Indian village, a true "living museum" in authentic detail. Here Cherokee Indian men and women daily carry on the ancient way of life, practicing the centuries-old arts of basketweaving, cooking, finger-weaving, pottery and weapon making. Cherokee guides in native costume direct visitors through the village and acquaint them with more than 200 years of history and tradition. Open daily 9 AM to 5:30 PM (mid-May through late October), Oconaluftee Indian Village includes period dwellings, a replica of a seven-sided Council House, a square ground, sweat house, herb garden and nature trail.
