As part of celebrating November as Native American Month, Southwestern Community College’s Oconaluftee Institute for Cultural Arts is hosting a Cherokee Baskets Show in its gallery on Tribal Bingo Road. The show is a combination of work from the Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual and a historical display from the Clay County Historical Association.

“The work on loan from the Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual is a testimony to the tradition, craftsmanship and attention to detail involved with creating each basket,” said OICA program director Jeff Marley.
