The Cherokees originally lived in the American southeast region, particularly Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

Most Cherokee were forced to move to Oklahoma in the 1800's along the Trail of Tears. Descendants of those Cherokee still live in Oklahoma. The descendants of others who escaped the Trail of Tears still live in the original Cherokee homelands.
