Tanake (Greetings)

For over 18 years the Catawba Cultural Preservation Project (CCPP) has provided children and adults with an introduction and insight into the Catawba Indian culture. Thousands each year have visited the Cultural Center and participated in drumming, dancing, pottery, beading, and more. Our mission statement is to preserve, protect, promote and maintain the rich cultural heritage of the Catawba Indian Nation.

We are a non-profit organization comprised of both tribal and non-tribal members dedicated to sharing Catawba culture and history with the public. We are located in an historic schoolhouse, circa 1951, known as the Catawba Cultural Center. The center houses an exhibit, archives, archaeology, language, programs department, and a Children’s services department as well as a unique craft store.
