Cherokee ~Cherokee tribes were indigenous to the Southeastern US, and were forced west on the Trail of Tears. The Cherokee Nation is now situated in modern day Oklahoma, and is one of the three Federally Recognized Cherokee Tribes. ~
Seven Clans. I am Bird Clan. For some, stating one's clan is not done because of the fear of conjuring; for others, clan is not stated because they believe that Christianity and traditional beliefs should never be mixed; for people like me, stating one's clan is acceptable because clan represents many values, including hospitality. I am a Christian Cherokee woman who is proud of clan.
