The Cherokee Preservation Foundation awarded $50,000 to Anna Fariello, associate professor with Hunter Library, to continue the library’s Cherokee crafts documentation project.
This third year of the project will focus on Cherokee carvers who worked during the first part of the 20th century. The project includes research on collections at the Museum of the Cherokee Indian and Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual.
