This Day in Cherokee Nation History: January 27, 1824 - John Ridge and Sarah Bird Northrup are married in Cornwall, Connecticut. The marriage created quite a controversy and outraged many of the townspeople because John was Cherokee and Sarah was white. Although intermarriage was common among the Cherokees at this time, it usually occurred between a Cherokee woman and a white man. This was because of the matrilineal kinship clan system of the Cherokee; meaning children are born to the clan of their mother. Children born to Cherokee fathers and white mothers did not receive full status as Cherokee citizens until the tribe's National Council passed a law in 1825 that granted this. John came from a prominent Cherokee family and was the son of Major Ridge, a well-known Cherokee leader and war hero. He met Sarah while attending the Foreign Mission School at Cornwall, CT where her father was a steward. Soon after their marriage, they returned to Cherokee Nation and settled in Georgia. John was elected to the Ch ...

Is Ralph Lauren Exploiting Native Americans (yes/no) source: huffingtonpost The clothing company Ralph Lauren released an online advertisement for its RRL line last month that drew scathing criticism from Native Americans. The ad's imagery harked back to the Old West, with henley jerseys and rustic jeans displayed in faded sepia tones. And while one page touted bandanas and “Western-style” shirts, the opposite page showed a Native American sporting a feathered headdress, holding a rifle across his lap. Another page depicted a stoic Native American man with dark skin, braided hair and a Western shirt-and-vest combo. Critics charged that the ads reduced people, and indeed entire cultures, to mere marketing props. Many called for a boycott. Dr. Adrienne Keene, a postdoctoral researcher and citizen of the Cherokee Nation, wrote in a post for Indian Country Today Media Network that Ralph Lauren had reached a "new low." “Ralph Lauren has been doing this my whole life,” Ruth Hopkins, a writer in her 30s ...

The whole concept of Indian warfare was not to kill in quantity, which was why feuds between tribes lasted generations. One commander said of his time fighting Indians that he learnt everything about how to command 30 dragoons, and forgot everything else he had ever learnt, not quite the sort of thing that’s required in the WBTS. The fact that the Delaware, Creek, Seminole, Kickapoo, Seneca, Osage, Shawnee, Choctaw and Chickasaw Tribes formed for the Union side; the 1st and 2nd Indian Home Guard as to fight within their territories wearing the Union uniform--they were mounted and trained as to be 'in uniform' per se to the Cavalry protocols, tactics and the like. Not all tribes had their men on horses--some acted as scouts, river pilots and the like. The National Archives has a picture of Native American Indians at Fredericksburg as 'sharp shooters.' On the Confederate side though, the Cherokee Nation created the 2nd Cherokee Mounted Rifles lead by Col. John Drew, one of the riches Cherokee Indians. And ...

Good morning, friends. Here in the Old Cherokee Nation of north Alabama in the mountains, home of the remarkable Sequoyah in the 1820's, inventor of the Cherokee writing system--the ONLY full writing system of almost 570 Native nations--I have powerful and profound news! Thanks to the loving and tenacious heart and spirit of Ginny Brink, it has just been announced that in the fall of 2015 ALL high school students, grades 10-12, in two major counties of Virginia will be required to read Walking the Trail, One Man's Journey Along the Cherokee Trail of Tears. This discussion among them and their teachers will encompass a week. This is a notable step in changing American education, where increased knowledge, history, awareness and Truth start to motivate students to higher levels of authenticity. If further blessed by other rugged individuals like Ginny ,James Percoco, and Dale Stewart, this required study of Native American history will spread to other states. Thank you, Great Spirit!

Cherokee removal, part of the Trail of Tears, refers to the forced relocation between 1836 and 1839 of the Cherokee Nation from their lands in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Alabama to the Indian Territory (present day Oklahoma) in the Western United States, which resulted in the death of an estimated 4000 Cherokee. The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.

Punishment for having Cancer!!! ?? that is what it sure feels like with everyone who "Said they care" doing nothing but talking lies!!!
I've been taught that if you try to live your life Gaduwa, that others will come to your defense if you are attacked, that you are "covered." I have found this to be true and appreciate those that understand who I am and how important community work is to me. With that said, I've never received any gifts for my work as a board member of the Cherokee Nation Community Association with the exception of knowing that I am a part of an organization that seeks to support the work of 22 Cherokee Communities across the country in their cultural and civic activities. These organized communities have to be comprised of at least 60% Cherokee Citizens, so when I send a presenter to an At-Large Community in my role as Cherokee Nation's Cultural Outreach Officer, they have met this criteria. I work with the Cherokee Community in Bakersfield, CA on their Annual Event in Ridgecrest, CA. This community raises funds for the event, I send one presenter. Just want to be clear on that.

When I walk the halls of our tribal complex, visit one of our health centers, stop by one of our field offices, or attend events at our casinos, I am struck by the number of veterans we have serving our tribal government. Their devotion to serving their fellow Americans, and now their fellow Native Americans, is both inspirational and humbling. Every branch of the military is represented in our nearly 9,000 employees at Cherokee Nation, CNB, CNE and CNI. Men and women serving as far back as the Korean and Vietnam Wars, to more recent military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, make up our diverse and valued workforce. And the same dedication they showed to their country, they show to the Cherokee Nation. In our health centers, veterans administer the same level of care to our Cherokee patients as they did to wounded warriors on the battlefield. Homes are being built for Cherokees, by Cherokees, with the same skills and work ethic used to rebuild entire countries. Cherokees are being trained and put back t ...

Legend of the Kituwah A Long - Long Time Ago . The Cherokee sometimes referred to themselves as Ani-Kituhwagi, ‘The People of Kituhwa’. Kituhwa was the name of an ancient city, located near present Bryson City, NC which was the nucleus of the Cherokee Nation. The common English phonetic spelling today is ‘Keetoowah’, a name used by traditionalist Cherokee groups like the Keetoowah Society (followers of traditional religion) and the United Keetoowah Band (a Federally Recognized Faction of predominantly Full Blood Cherokees - actually the Keetoowah were a recognized faction before the Cherokee Nation was). The United Keetoowah Band is located in Tahlequah, OK. The Legend of the Keetoowah, as recalled in 1930 by Levi B. Gritts, a predominent member of the traditionalist Keetoowah Society, places them on islands in the Atlantic Ocean east of South America. Anthropologists have discovered that Cherokee basket and pottery styles resemble those of South American and Caribbean tribes, differing from other ...

Cherokee History of Clay County, Kentucky/ Red Bird / Big Turtle Its county seat is Manchester. The county was formed in 1807 and named in honor of Green Clay (1757–1826). Clay was a member of the Virginia and Kentucky State legislatures, first cousin once removed of Henry Clay, U.S. Senator from Kentucky and Secretary of State in the 19th century. Red Bird was a Cherokee who lived and died in what is known today as Clay County, Kentucky, after and before European colonization, a time when the Cherokee Nation extended to the Ohio River in the north, the Cumberland River in the west, and the Great Kanawha River in the east. The well-known "Warriors Trail," which ran from Florida to Michigan, and served as an important trade route for many thousands of years, passes through Clay County. Remnants of the trail survive to this day, running up Goose Creek to the mouth of Otter Creek, up Otter Creek, and down Stinking Creek. Other segments of the trail are present on the bench tops of mountains along the Middl ...

One of the Works Project Administration projects during the Depression era was a collection of narratives by elderly people. In Oklahoma, historian Grant Foreman helped to oversee this project. The narratives provided a glimpse into history from a different perspective than is often found in the history books. Ordinary citizens — farmers, cattlemen, homemakers, Indians, freed slaves — all shared their experiences in pioneering Oklahoma. One narrative by a Cherokee freedwoman told of how many Indian Territory residents fled, or were led, to Kansas for the duration of the Civil War. This woman’s name wasn’t given, so I will call her Sallie. She had been born into slavery in 1852 near Tahlequah in the Cherokee Nation. Her parents had been slaves for a farmer, also unidentified, who had a plantation southeast of Tahlequah. The plantation owner left the “bossing” of the slaves to his sons, but according to Sallie, they were not harsh or restrictive. The farm produced wheat, corn and millet. The sla ...

Cherokees / Cherokee Cherokees (in English: Cherokee in Cherokee: ah-ni-yv-wi-ya) are the Native Americans who inhabited the present territory of the states of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia in the southeastern United States when Europeans made contact with them in the sixteenth century. Subsequently, most of the Cherokees were forced to move to the Ozark Plateau (Oklahoma). The Cherokees were one of the people who gathered in the "Five Civilized Tribes". origins There are two prevailing views about the origin of the Cherokee. One is that the Cherokee, a people of Iroquoian language, were behind in terms of the Appalachian South, which might have migrated in late prehistoric times from northern areas, the traditional territory of the later Haudenosaunee five nations and other peoples of Iroquois speech. Researchers in the nineteenth century recorded conversations with elders who recounted an oral tradition of the Cherokee people migrating south from the ...

As a Native American (Go Cherokee Nation!) I approve of the Redskins name. A Big Fat Raspberry to all of you pantywaist liberals who didn't decide it was politically incorrect until last year! What happened to Occupying Wall Street anyway? Nothing is worse than a liberal who won't follow through on his agenda.

Some more CHEROKEE NATION TRIVIA from the 1999 constitution convention that I have been engrossed in reading - it has some good history in it - When the 1999 Constitution was being revised an amendment was introduced that one must be 1/16 Cherokee blood and speak Cherokee in order to be Chief - here David Cornsilk makes a very good speech against it - MR. CORNSILK: Mr. Chairman, I rise in vehemenous opposition to that proposal. Again, with my experience in the Cherokee Nation, having worked in the registration department for over three years, I would submit to this body that the Cherokee Nation people are very diverse. We've heard that many, many times since we've been here. And that ninety percent or more of the Cherokee Nation is less than one-quarter Indian.
