Cherokee National Holiday

It is such an exciting time here in Tahlequah as we anxiously await the expected 100,000 visitors celebrating our Cherokee Heritage. Cherokee National Holiday is synonymous with Labor Day Weekend here in Tahlequah, the Capital of the Cherokee Nation. If you have never been, downtown truly comes alive for the parade and state of the union address.

Later that day there will be hundreds of vendors and craft booths set up where you can shop and buy authentic Cherokee products and food. But before you leave downtown, stop in Meigs for a quick visit and get a cup of coffee and a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.

My Cherokee Heritage is something that I take very seriously. My family has lived in the Tahlequah area since 1837.granny house

This is my Granny’s house that was built in 1909 on the original Cherokee Land allotted to our family at Moody’s. Both my grandfather and mother were born in this house.

Reflecting on my family heritage I am proud to have worked with our extremely talented master jeweler Justin Scott in designing this special heritage collection. Each piece is designed with meaning and presents Cherokee symbols in an artistic design that is both fashionable and durable.

Our Life Pendant is available for purchase for $299. Each of the center points is symbolic of the four stages of life from infanthood, adolescence, maturity, and old age. The life circle is surrounded by traditional Cherokee symbols of wind and water to represent the constant movement and recycling of life.
