The American territory was sprawling across the Mississippi River and into new Native American territory. The Great Plains and far West were occupied by both Indians and Hispanics whose custom and way of live were distinct in language religion and kinship and governance. The white settlers and hunters were a threat to the resources in which they used for survival.
The Cherokee Indians were one of the civilized tribes in the United States. They were located in the southeastern part of the U.S. This includes the western parts of North and South Carolina, The northern parts of Alabama and Georgia, Southwest Virginia and the Cumberland basin of Tennessee. It appears the Cherokee settled in 1000 A.D. to 1500 A.D. Their development took place in two stages or phases. The Pisgah which took place 1300 A.D. to 1540 A.D. and the Qualla which took place 1540 A.D. to 1750 A.D. The first period was primitive and the second was influenced by European contact. They were a large tribe that was part of the Iroquian language group even though their language is very different. Despite this the
The Americans wanted to gain more land in the country. The best way to gain more land was to take the land of the Cherokee Indians. The question was, what would the best path be for the Cherokee, to stay or to leave? This would decide the fate of the Cherokee. Most people believe that the Cherokee should just leave and avoid conflict. This would also mean relocation and their land would be given to the Americans. For this reason, my answer to the historical question is that the Cherokee deserve to stay and keep their land.
Cherokee Indians were found in the south and southeast commonly in these states North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, West Virginia/Virginia, Alabama, and Tennessee. Old artifacts show that they lived in this region about 11,000 years ago to the present day and that they had very natural reliable resources that they used on a daily basis. The Cherokee Indians had a well-managed system in which they had villages of 60 or less for housing, the women did the cooking, cleaning, farming/harvesting and the men did the hunting and gathering. In the region where the Cherokee’s were known to live at they modified their own weapons, arts/crafts, and clothing also using trees and plants for medicinal uses. The Cherokee Indians were one of
Marilyn Frye describes oppression as “something pressed is something caught between or among forces and barriers which are so related to each other that jointly they restrain, restrict or prevent the thing’s motion or mobility” (Rothenberg, pg. 149-150). The Cherokee Indians have faced their share of hardship and oppression, from mistreatment to starvation; they have overcome the oppression from the white man to live a full and prosperous life. Within the Cherokee Indians, there exists a subgroup, the Cherokee woman. I am going to talk at length about this group. There exist some similarities and some differences between my perception and upbringing of being a white woman and the Cherokee woman in regards to culture, cultural and social

Before invasion of the Americans onto Cherokee territory, the Cherokee lived in peace and harmony. Keetoowah is the name of the ancient Cherokee town in the eastern homelands, said to be the “Mother Town” of the people (Conley 18). Many of the Cherokee Indians originated here according to the traditions. They referred themselves as Ani-Kituwagi, meaning Keetoowah People, or Ani-yunwi-ya, the Real People (Conley 27). The fertile lands of the Keetoowah were filled of many resources, but as the population grew too large for the town, many people had moved out and built new towns. Overtime, many towns were built one after another. Soon, there were approximately 200 scattered tribes over vast areas that consisted of a number of
The Cherokee individuals were equally hunters and farmers. They grew corn, beans, and squash. When the Europeans came to America, they transported wars and diseases to the Cherokees. The general public of the Cherokee community abided in wattle and daub constructions composed by weaving wood, river cane, and vines into a framework. The roof of Cherokee houses was either thatched with grass or shingled with bark. As several as eight people might share the classic Cherokee house. There was usually a fire burning in the house, but when the fire is not burning the houses are smoky and dark. Even though the Cherokee men assembled the Cherokee houses the Cherokee women possessed them. The Cherokee ate deer, bear, buffalo, elk, squirrel, rabbit,

In the Cherokee tribes, there’s a saying about an elderly Cherokee chief who was teaching his grandson about life, "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego. The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too." The young boy questions his grandfather asking which wolf wins. And his grandfather responded “The one you feed” (Cherokee proverb). This saying gets me through my daily life, I tell myself to never feed the evil wolf because that will lead to all the sadness I have fought so hard to get out of.
To a Native American, ones heritage can define who an individual is and may become. When America was being populated by Europeans there was an effort to alter the way of life for Native Americans forcing them to adopt new ideas and abandon their traditions. This has led to modern Native Americans feeling like they have lost a large piece of their identity. Native Americans struggle in mainstream society because they have dealt with great trauma and don’t have the tools to help them cope in healthy ways. They have been torn from their homes and heritage, as there was “centuries of forcible removal of Native American children from their homes in order to be assimilated into mainstream American culture” (Wyant). The result of these kinds of actions
A large part of the formation of our country and Western society involved interaction with tribes of Native Americans that inhabited North America well before Europeans settled it. It started with Spanish conquistadors and explorers, then British colonies which would mold and change into the revolutionized American Colonists. Along this succession, the Indian tribes on the east coast experienced extreme prejudice, regime changes and war. Among these tribes are the Cherokee. The Cherokee were at the forefront of Indian-European relations. They remained strong in the southeast, despite war and epidemic. The Cherokee underwent significant culture changes yet not always by choice. War and disease tore apart the Cherokee as well other tribes but
The member of the Cherokee Nation and Hispanic woman had a child together. But before child was born, man refused to help woman in anyway: mentally or financially. After baby girl was born, it was extremely difficult for the mother of a child to raise her on her own. Because woman already had 2 older kids that she was taking care of. Woman offered to man either to pay child support or give up his parental rights; entire conversation was over the text messages. Man agreed to relinquish his rights only to the mother, but he didn’t know that she was going to place baby for an adoption to the Californian family. The problem raise when the Cherokee Nation found out that mother of a child failed to identify father as a member of the Cherokee Nation,
