I am like Josiah, why can't they be from some other tribe? Why do they always (ok 95% of the time) have to be Cherokee Princesses, Warriors, Chiefs??? I swear the Cherokee have to be the most prolific breeders on the planet... My Father has some thoughts as to why.. he says that it's because the Cherokee for the most part were peaceful, and had started adopting white "civilized" people's ways, long before our brothers and sisters in the west did..

It's very tiresome. I have just started saying oh that's nice and walking off when they start that I am the great grand daughter of a Cherokee princess.... I know that it's wrong to be rude like that but I am just getting to the point that I can't be nice about it anymore.

I am the great grand daughter of farmers, who moved to Texas. We like being from Texas, our football teams are better.... Maybe I can be a Texas Princess... maybe that might be better than being an Innuit Princess, (they still haven't got back to me one that one... but I am trying, I want to be the first one so my great grandkids can be a princess or a warrior/chief. I plan on getting Lakota medicine man to teach meto be Innuit....

Josiah, Thank you for the history of Cherokee. I did not know that they have left Kentucky long before 18th century. Maybe that is why my great grandmother who escaped into the mountains, got married and have children moving into Calhoun County of Kentucky. My family history is kind of not clear. My sister is trying to find information about our past ancestors so we are pretty much in the dark. The history of Cherokee before and during the Trails of Tears are very interesting and sad that it happen to all of us fighting for our own rights as human beings. We are people, not animals. I am sick of that kind of abuse. I understand now so thank you.

Sorry it just leaves me more confused. I know Manitoulin Island (I live in Ontario too), met many powwow friends from the different res's there, I was certain they were Anishnawbe, not Cree.

Yes, you are right that they are Anishnawbe and I am married to my husband who is Ojibwe (Anishnawbe). I am Cree. Do you know that Shirley Cheechoo who is a director of many native movies lives right here in M'Chigeeng First Nation and is also a Cree married to her husband who is Anishnawbe too? There are some other tribes that intermarry into their tribe. Sorry for your confusion what you know about Manitoulin Island. No problem.

I went back and read some of my rather long winded posts on this thread and after reading them I have to say I still stand by my thoughts on this matter.
Especially in the light of the Tennessee Senate granting State Recognition to several " Cherokee Bands" in their State
They are happy now the State of Tennesse has said they are Indian so they must be...

The Legend of Tallulah
A white hunter by chance found himself on a Cherokee trail in Tallulah Falls. He was found by the Indian maiden Tallulah, only daughter of Grey Eagle, chief of the Cherokees. She fell in love with him and led him to her father's camp at Council Rocks, where, due to the lateness of the hour, he was told he could stay the night.

Because it was a bad omen for a white man to be found in an Indian camp and because of jealousy, the young Indian men demanded the immediate trial and execution of the stranger. Grey Eagle was forced to pronounce sentence of death. The hunter was to be bound hand and foot and thrown over the cliff into the gorge, 900 feet below.

Tallulah begged her father not to execute the white man, but the chief would not change his judgement for fear of being considered a weakling. His daughter threatened to jump off the cliff if he carried out the sentence. Sadly, Grey Eagle did not believe her. Just as the young man was thrown over the cliff, Tallulah came running from the back of the camp and leaped from the cliff. From that time forward, the cliff is known as "Lover's Leap."

On the third day after the tragedy, Grey Eagle moved his camp two miles away from Council Rocks to a gap in the mountains between Tallulah Mountain and Hickory Nut Mountain, where he eventually died and was buried.

This is what is said of the story:
There is a delightful legend about one Chief Grey Eagle–whose rough granite throne was until recently on the campus of Tallulah Falls School–incorporating an ill-fated romance between a white man and a beautiful Cherokee woman, Lover’s Leap, and that sort of thing. I like the story. I have sat many times in Grey Eagle’s chair. I have even looked over Lover’s Leap from the rim of the gorge and I have looked up at it from the depth of the rocky gorge. Unfortunately, the story is just a legend with not a whit of historical truth. But, still, what stories could Grey Eagle’s chair tell us?

Hey hummingbird, I hope that you are real and not someone here pulling legs... I live not far from you but in Georgia, and there is a small group of Cherokee and probably Creek and Choctaw people around here. There are areas that are not federally recognized reservations where families congregated or lived in proximity to each other.

I don't know what Orlando has as far as community, but if your father is originally from Georgia, SE Georgia is pretty rural still.

I'm answering because I kept having something bug me about "penpals" and perhaps trading computer programming knowledge for language... I don't know why. I thought it would be good to help someone earn a bunch of money like I used to.

I'm not quite sure I understand what you are saying exactly, but am willing to listen. My boyfriend is part Cherokee and part Apache, I am something, not sure, one family member says "Souix" but grandma was adopted or something like that and doesn't look like her family, she is darker, the family that raised her were likely some Cherokee and Saponi way back or somthing like that. I have a little Mohawk/Pequot on dad's side. My ex husband was raised Huron on the res.

I'm interested in learning languages, esp. those that are threatened with dying out.
