  • Western Carolina University joins Cherokee Language partnership

    Cherokee, North Carolina (WCUPR)

    Chancellor John Bardo earlier this year committed Western Carolina University to joining a community-university partnership focused on revitalizing the Cherokee language.

    “Language does more than allow us to communicate with each other. Language is how we conceptualize the world,” said Bardo, a sociologist by training. “I’m very excited that Western is a part of keeping alive what it means to be Cherokee.”

Join the online community forum celebrating Native American Culture, Pow Wows, tribes, music, art, and history.
