It's most likely an Anglicization of the Cherokee's name for themselves, Tsalagi, whose translation is widely debated. Some speculate that it comes from the Choctaw word 'Cha-…la-kee' which means "those who live in the mountains."
á©á, gitli ("geetlee")
Although it is hard to believe by modern standards; they put it in their mouths and chewed. Some are even rumored to have swallowed the masticated animal flesh (more accuratel…y muscle, the flesh was used as hides for clothing).
There isn't a "Cherokee Indian dog", if that's what you are asking. However, the word for dog in the Cherokee language is "Gitli", pronounced Gee-(h)lee.
Tsali, originally of Coosawattee Town (Kusawatiyi), was a noted figure at two different periods of Cherokee history, both of them vital.

If you are talking about the dog being named ghost dog in the book "call of the wild" then the dogs name is Buck.
It's God spelled backwards.
The Cherokee Rose came to the US in 1780. The Trail of Tears was in1838. The rose grew invasively in the area of the Cherokee, andthey were responsible for desiminating it eve…n more, so the rosebecame associated with the people. Then when the Trail of Tearsoccurred, a lovely story to tell around the campfires was formed.
depends on the breed, but blacky, smokey, moonlight, twilight, twister ( because Licorice is kind of twisty) and yah. Thats all i got.
They may have been much like the dogs now known as "Carolina Dogs," also called "American Dingos." These dogs were discovered in the 1970's living alone (no humans) in the rem…ote swamps of the Georgia/South Carolina border area. Dogs similar to them were once common in the Southeast, not very well thought of, and were the proverbial "yellow dog" that dedicated Democrats would vote for rather than a Republican. They are believed to be the remnants of Indian dogs of the area.
