Transcript of Masks Representing the Seven Clans of the Cherokee

Presentation created by Cicely Mason Masks of the 7 Clans of the Cherokee There are seven clans of the Cherokee. A clan is an extended family. In the Cherokee Tribe, clans consisted of mothers, fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts and uncles. Women were considered the head of the house, so it was natural to belong to the mother's clan. The clans are each named for certain characteristics about the people in each clan. Those characteristics make up the identity of each of the seven clans. Together those clans are known to the Cherokee as the "Ugaya," or the "Seven Clan Society" They are: *The Paint Clan *The Wild Potato Clan *The Blue Clan *The Long Hair Clan *The Deer Clan *The Small Bird Clan *The Wolf Clan "Aniwaya"
