Bear Hunting in Cherokee! – Cherokee, North Carolina – 03/20/2019

We LOVE Bear Hunting in Cherokee, North Carolina!

No, not THAT kind of hunting!

Searching for Painted Bears throughout town from The Bears Project!

The Bears Project started in 2005 to showcase a variety of talented artists within the Qualla Boundary. Bears are a large part of the Cherokee culture and appear in many of the stories and legends that the Cherokee people hold sacred. The culture currently recognizes contributions from the clans of Bird, Blue, Deer, Long Hair, Paint, Wild Potato, and Wolf.

Through multiple trips, we have located most of the Bears, but we still have a few more to find!

Here are a handful from today!
