Kituwah Mound - the Mother Town

Kituwah is known as the Mother Town of the Cherokee People.  Hundreds of years ago, Kituwah Mound held the Council House and the first fire.  Around the mound was the Cherokee village.  During the time of the Removal (1830’s), the land was taken from the Cherokee including Kituwah.   Just within the last 25 years, the land has been returned the People.  Today it is many acres of farm land, although there is no village, the People use the land for gardens, dancing ceremonies and other important events Town
