da bears ......cherokee style

a nice surprise to discover
the Cherokee Bear Trail,
Cherokee, NC

project began in 2005 
showcasing a series of 
life-like fiberglass bears
painted in bright colors
by Native American artists.

each bear promotes a theme
related to the Cherokee's heritage.

currently 17 of the proposed 25
bears are on display throughout the
main business area and around town.
until recently there were 19 , but a
tour bus ran over two of the statues.
