Housing has always been a dilemma for Eastern Band Members. The tribe seems to put that need last. What burns me up is the fact that we have Indian people needing housing yet you see all these non-Indian people living in campgrounds year round. Look at the one on River Rd off 441. It looks like a slum. It is chocked full of non Indians and it is such an eye sore. Why not take some of those places and build housing for our own people?  (Nov 28, 2010 | post #15)

Happy Holiday Campground

Last I heard, the family who owns the land was getting ripped off from the former owner of the campground. The family wanted to take the campground back and see if they could bring a company in to run it. It sounds like it was a bad move. Unless the tribe bought the land from the family, it is not tribal owned. However, the tribe may be helping the family get the campground back on its feet.  (Nov 28, 2010 | post #40)

Iconic Cherokee Chief Henry has died

This day 2 years ago, we were sitting in the church as the funeral for Henry was going on. It will be a hard holiday for the entire Lambert Family. Know that you are loved and thought of esp. today!  (Nov 26, 2009 | post #31)

3 charged in child abuse bust

You are correct Theresa and that is EXACTLY why I will not frequent that restaurant anymore. I also feel that the entire family is arrogant and looks down on many here in Cherokee. I suggest to anyone and everyone NOT to go there, I don't care how good the food seems to be.  (Nov 24, 2009 | post #53)

I have to agree with you 100% Fairness! The sad fact is MANY use religion to promote themselves and they also use it as a weapon. Heck, they used it to justify the killing of Indians. I also steer clear of any business displaying that kind of stuff. I just don't believe in using it to criticize anyone. I have experienced to much racisim myself and I will stand up quickly when it comes to someone being ridiculed for their race, sexual prefrences, religion etc .. This world is made up of different people for a reason and tolerence is such an important part of day to day life. We don't have to agree with everyone and I don't. Yet everyone has the right to be who they are without the threat of ridicule. Even though I disagree with what Knotme said, due to the fact of HOW they said it, I in turn agree with the principle BEHIND what he/she said. The white man has come to the Qualla Boundary time and time again to "tame the savage" and bring their religion in when we had our own to begin with. So what I am saying all in all I guess is that we can disagree with something without criticing the person for the belief. I believe things can be done in a very tactful way which Knotme failed to do in that post but then again, that is just my opinion. I know what Knotme was getting at and they had a hard time communicating that without being accusational and resentful. To know Knotme may explain why they feel that way. I feel that Knotme is a good person and they have been hurt in some way and have valid reasons for the way they feel. (again, my opinion) Fairness, you put it very well in words and I think that is exactly what Knotme was trying to say! :) Got to Laugh - You are so correct. Both of those restaurants are wonderful and well worth the money. They have been here in Cherokee for years and are known to the locals and both are wonderful places to eat. They have good food, great prices, family atmospheres and you feel welcome when you are there. I love the fact that I can walk in a restaurant and order up an Indian Taco, or Frybread and chili. Restaurants like that are few and far between (except right here at home) I guess that is part of what I miss when I have to leave Cherokee. If I were to do that anywhere else, I would be looked at like I just walked off a flying saucer.  (Sep 30, 2009 | post #14)

Thier religious belief has nothing to do with the quality of food at the restaurant. You can talk about the quality of food but why drag someones religion or race into it?? Makes no sense. Before you post next time, read it over and THINK before you press that "Post Comment" button. It is okay not to believe the way someone else does but to use it as a way to cut someone down is uncalled for. GWY Topix Editor  (Sep 29, 2009 | post #11)

I went twice within the last two months. I thought maybe the first time was a "bad night" for them. I have to admit, I did not eat the chicken either night BUT I did not have a good experience either night either. I doubt that I will be going back at all. I would rather go to Ryan's in Sylva if I am going to spend that amount of money!  (Sep 28, 2009 | post #9)

This use to be a good place, I don't know what happened to it. It is over priced and definately NOT the best buffet in town. DO NOT waste your time or money there. Very few locals will even go there, even with a local discount it is not worth it.  (Sep 28, 2009 | post #7)
