Discover Kituwah Mound, Cherokee Mother Town, at Two Upcoming Run/Walk Events

Seven miles outside of downtown Cherokee is Kituwah, the original Cherokee settlement, also known as the “Cherokee Mother Town.” Kituwah is considered by all three of the federally recognized Cherokee tribes as the place of origin for the Cherokee people.
