Eastern Band of Cherokee
Today the Qualla Boundary is home to the Eastern Band of Cherokee. Located in the mountains of western North Carolina, the Qualla Boundary is not a reservation, but rather trust land purchased for the Cherokee remaining in the area after the Indian Removal Act.
There are over 14,000 enrolled members of the Eastern Band. The Cherokee hold their homeland dear and the natural beauty of the area’s mountains, forests, and rivers is both utilized and reflected in their art.
