Land of the Cherokees

  • This undated informational insert was included with a collection of 20 postcards in a package sold together called, "The Land of the Cherokees." This flyer highlights three figures in Cherokee history: Junaluska, Sequoyah, and Tsali and advertises the Cherokee Indian Fair. Such postcards were a common way to promote tourism in the Cherokee area, particularly to encourage patronage of the work of Cherokee artisans who displayed and sold their work at craft shops and cultural events around Cherokee. The postcard series was produced by the Asheville Post Card Company.
