Partial credit. In the pre-contact era, buffalo did range into the panhandle of Florida.

Historic Bison range

Wow, the Ohio River has moved. Historically, the Cherokee lived, primarily, in what is modern North Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. ( Lovely country, by the way. I holds a special place in my heart.) Today they have homelands in Oklahoma and North Carolina. But Cherokee citizens live all over the world.

There are many stories for the origin of the pipe. Each tribe that uses it, has its own. Some tribes made pipes with clay, some with soap stone, some with serpentine, and some with catlinite. I've seen stone, horn and wood.

But, these details are irrelevant. They are only questions and answers to illustrate a point. If JD had said to me what he said to you, here is how I would have interpreted his words: "You're no expert. You're not part of my tribe; don't presume to tell me what my tribe does. When I tell you you're wrong, don't argue with me just because what I've said doesn't agree with a book or movie."

JD, forgive me if I was presumptuous. But, I think we're running up against European vs Native learning modes here. Deductive vs inductive.
