New Digital Exhibit: Katúah Journal

Be sure to take a look at Special Collection's new digital exhibit: Katúah: Bioregional Journal of the Southern Appalachians. Katúah is the name for the Cherokees’ homeland in the Western North Carolina mountains and adjacent region. The journal, published by volunteer editors between 1983-1993, promoted activism in the region from an holistic view to tackle social, environmental, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues, many of which are still relevant today.

  • Digital Scholarship and Initiatives:  Pam Mitchem, Dea Rice, and Matt Ransom
  • Technology Services:  Scott Goldstein
