Our mission is to preserve and document the history, culture and genealogical integrity of our Cherokee heritage. We maintain a database of people whose ancestors are of authentic Cherokee blood, develop lesson plans and curriculum for K-12 educational organizations, and provide free resources to aid in genealogical research.
We encourage you to learn about your family heritage and to use best practices in tracing your ancestry. Discern the truth from the myth. We believe that it is most important that all people are educated in our history and that we work together in the present to preserve indigenous cultures worldwide. While we respect and remember the difficulties faced by our ancestors, it's what we do in our own lives that will be remembered by our descendants. Please join us in support and defense of indigenous people throughout the world.
