Can see a lot without much walking. Loved seeing the Indians making crafts in their own habitat. Would have liked to see dancers in more costume, like head gear and feathers. But what we saw of dancers was good.

This is fun for children & adults. Learn how the American Indian lived before & after the settlers arrived & screwed up everything. Watch crafts such as basket weaving, bow, arrow making, working with beads, how they got their dyes from roots & trees. Watch a blow gun in action. Learn about the different types of arrows. The only thing that got me was about 200 children showed up for field trip. Wait them out. After tour you are on your own. You can go back & watch some more & ask questions.

We wanted to learn something of the Indian heritage and culture. The Indian Village was expensive at $18 per adult, the dances were average, exhibits were limited and a bit staged. I'd take kids if it was cheaper, but overall wouldn't recommend .. Save your money and go to the Cherokee Indian Museum which is close by.
