How do the Cherokee Indians respect for nature?

This is a cultural / religious question that European society has been trying to write about, as well as understand for as long as they have been exposed to native Americans. There is no easy or simple answer to this question and it would take years of study for you to even begin to understand the stories and concepts involved. As the simplest (and wholly lacking) answer: Native Americans had a deep respect for EVERYTHING - in the world view of a Indian a rock was equal to a man in rights, as well as respect. As a very real rule, that is about the best answer you will get from any tribal member - as they have given up on trying to get 'whites' to understand these relationships.

Place of worship for Cherokee Indians?

Cherokee's had a very specific spot and time of worship, much like European religions. To find a Cherokee Church, please look to the north - see that tree on top of the hill almost outside your vision, that is one corner - now repeat this in all compass directions. Once you have located 'that spot' you are in the center of the Cherokee Church. Time was a bit harder to determine, this may take you a bit. Please wait till Dawn, now count forward 24 hours and 59 seconds - but ONLY do that TODAY. You cannot wait till tomorrow, and yesterday is too late. You have now chosen the holy day of the Cherokee People. Now that you have the spot and the time you must now repeat after me for our opening prayer, quote " ." [Smartellic answer truncated] I'm sorry if this answer seams to be pointed, but the concepts of religion between Europeans and natives are exact opposites. Eurpoean religions hold that certain days are holy and you live your life by 'these standards' which are forgivable for violations either on Sunday and or after death. This fosters our belief as to why your society as a whole is in contradiction to itself, as no act is really a sin and every crime (no matter how heinous) can be forgiven by the act itself - IE: No moral responsibility for actions. Native beliefs were different as every day is holy, every breath an act of the gods, and every act must be atoned for - IE: there is no forgiveness for a 'sin'

What country did Cherokee Indians come from?

The Cherokee are from lands that are now part of the USA. They were originaly a powerful tribe in the region of North and South Carolina and moved successfully to adopt many elements of the surrounding white culture following the American Revolution.. During the Presidency of Andrew Jackson, they were forced to give up their lands and relocate to what is now the state of Oklahoma, but was then called the Indian Territory. Cherokee lawyers appealed the order to mive through the courts and the US Supreme Court foud in their favor, but Jackson refused to comply with their decision. The move from North Carolina to the Indian Territory is called the Trail of Tears because so many died along the way due to the haste required and the poor support offered by government officials.. Some Cherokee ressisted the relocation, took to the hills, and remained in the Carolinas. As a result, the Cherokee now exist as two Tribes, the Eastern Cherokee and the Western Cherokee.

This depends entirely on 'which set' of Cherokee's you are referring to, as there are many different ones. 1) Western Band Cherokee's, members of "The Cherokee Nation" have no rights under their own constitution, or the constitution of the United States - as the BIA's approval process made them a "political state" under the direction and in "Trust" of the United States. (Please note that US Citizens have no constitutional rights under US Supreme Court decisions; any right maybe violated by government and the citizen must know of that right and complain of its violation before they can take advantage of that right.) 2) Eastern Band Cherokee's - members of the enrolled tribal government of that eastern band have no rights, the same as Western Band Cherokee's as they were made citizens of the State of Tennessee (and by proxy United States Citizens) to avoid removal under the Indian Removal Act. 3) Non tribal affiliated Cherokee's - those that have never been a member of the above two nations, or who have expatriated (USC Title 8) and returned to the original Cherokee nation have all rights of freeholder men, and may collectively, as well as individually, invoke the rights of treaties held by that nation as well as carry on negotiations with other nations. (Of course those Indians who attempt this are arrested by Homeland Security as "Domestic Terrorists" and held in jail without trial, in an attempt to silence them by process).

What if your grandfather was a Cherokee Indian what percent Cherokee are you?

I am in the same boat grandmother was full blooded cherokee, made my father 50%, and makes his children 25%. Hope this helps. Answer 2: The "Blood Quantum" quoted above is falling into disuse as it cannot be shown through any scientific method how the "Aryan" blood (white blood) causes the non-Aryan blood (Indian blood, Mongrel blood) to be displaced through genetics in any form. To translate this in a form that most can understand: 1) If John, a full blood Indian has a child with Mary, a full white blood person; their children are considered 50/50. 2) If Joe, a full blooded Indian has a child with Sara, a full white blood person; their children are considered to be 50/50. 3) If Joe and John's children then have a child together it is considered to have "less" mongrel blood than Aryan blood; 25/75. The definition as set out above was created by the founders of the Nazi party in Germany, and it is still a cornerstone of their beliefs. The original Native American viewpoint, being expounded again today, follows the basic guidelines that you are as native as you feel and live - to translate; how you live your life defines these things.

The Cherokee People are of the five civilized tribes and as such lived in a fairly "modern" way, adapting the log cabins of the European Settlers and later in the 1800's some even were mansion owners and slave owners themselves.

Thus their Christmas has evolved into a Christmas like any others. Complete with tree, trimmings and present exchanging. Needless to say the Trail of Tears happened as the Settlers saw how wealthy and fertile the land was in the Southeast where the Cherokee lived. No matter who, wealthy or poor, the Cherokee were thus driven from their homelands for the new Settlers to take over their homes and lands. Yet today a remnant remains in the east and they too celebrate Christmas as everyone who is a Christian does.
