They moved to an area in georgia, alabama and Tennessee
The Cherokee tribe originated in North Carolina, eventually spreading throughout the southeastern United States. After people discovered gold on Cherokee land in the sta…te of Georgia, President Andrew Jackson ignored Cherokee land rights, eventually forcing the Cherokee (and many other tribes) to move west of the Mississippi River, into present day Oklahoma. Some Cherokee managed to hide in the mountains of North Carolina, to remain in their homeland. Today, the Cherokee nation is divided into the Eastern Band (in North Carolina) and the Cherokee Nation (Oklahoma).
The Cherokee are a people native to North America, who, at the time of European contact in the sixteenth century, inhabited what is now the Eastern and Southeastern Unit…ed States. Most were forcibly moved westward to the Ozark Plateau in the 1830s. They are one of the tribes referred to as the Five Civilized Tribes. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, they are the largest of the 563 federally recognized Native American tribes in the United States. The Cherokee refer to themselves as Tsa-la-gi or A-ni-yv-wi-ya - which literally translates as "Principal People"

The Cherokee ate deer, bear, rabbit, fish, berries, nuts, corn, beans, and squash. They lived in North and South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia.
There are very few questions that are 'out of bounds' religiously speaking. This happens to be one of those very few.. There are several 'accounts' and 'books' that claim to …document the practices of a funeral, but please note that each of these admit they were not shown everything and or that they were shown a 'pony show' (fake). Also note, that these rituals varied by clan.

When the Anglo explorers first encountered the Cherokee, they had a guide who was a Creek Indian, When they asked …him who these people were, he answered "Cherokee"- which is Creek for "Don't understand them.".

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.
