Item
  • This program for the 1937 Cherokee Indian Fair is 23 pages and documents the fair that was held on October 5, 6, 7, & 8 of that year. The fair was first formally established and held regularly in 1914. Since it began, one of its main functions was to sponsor competitions that provided a showcase for Cherokee crafts. A tradition that continues today, at the annual fair, the Cherokee display a wide variety of high quality work. The fair programs were usually 20 to 30 pages each and listed the competition categories and the monetary prizes offered. Beginning in 1935, in addition to seeing displays of the finished craft entries, visitors to the fair were able to observe the techniques and processes involved in producing the craft items on view with demonstrations of basket making, pottery construction, spinning, and weaving presented.
