Miss Price's Family Tree
Transcript of Miss Price's Family Tree
The Cherokee Indians were one of the largest of five Native American tribes who settled in the American Southeast portion of the country. The tribe came from Iroquoian descent. They had originally been from the Great Lakes region of the country, but eventually settled closer to the east coast.
Today, the largest population of Cherokee Indians live in the state of Oklahoma, where there are three federally recognized Cherokee communities with thousands of residents.
Iroquoian languages - family of about 16 North American Indian languages originally spoken around the eastern Great Lakes and in parts of the Middle Atlantic states and the South.
CHEROKEE NATIONAL HOLIDAY TAHLEQUAH
The Cherokee were herded at bayonet point in a forced march of 1,000 miles ending with our arrival in "Indian Territory", which is today part of the state of Oklahoma. Thousands died in the internment camps, along the trail itself and even after their arrival due to the effects of the journey.
