“Unto these Hills in Cherokee, NC worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Experience the rich history of the Cherokee tribe. Of course, it comes from the perspective of the Cherokee who had endured the "invasion" of the white men. If you are not Cherokee you might feel guilty because of the way our Native Americans were mistreated. The outdoor drama is worth your time and the reasonable fee that is charged. It is a great way to revisit history and understand the background of the Cherokee.

“A Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

I've gone to see this each time I've been there if it's playing. An amazing production that takes you back into history and what it was like to be right where so many of these events had taken place. Your sitting in the very mountains of where some of the greatest injustices occurred and get to watch some of that story played out in front of you. I can't say enough how good this is!

“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a spectacular outdoor drama that tells the story of the Cherokee people. I highly recommend visiting the museum prior to attending to gain more insight about the Cherokee. The drama starts at dusk and continues into the night which makes it more spectacular. There is plenty for everyone, drama, history, humor, dancing, etc. You will be in awe of the Cherokee dances (especially the Eagle dance). It is a family friendly environment. I also recommend bringing bug spray. You are outdoors so there will be bugs out and about.

“LOVE THIS!”

Not thae same as it was when I was a kid...much better now! Worth the admission. Go, enjoy and be entertained. You might just learn something about the Cherokee nation, too, if you are not careful!
