Cherokee Dances fall into two basic categories: Social Dances and Religious or Ceremonial Dances. Religious Dances always involved pre-selected dancers and complex choreography and steps, and also included at least one social dance at the end of the ceremonies which was open to all of the participants in a ceremonial dance.
The Cherokee lived in houses made out of oak saplings in the winter and open-aired houses roofed in bark in the summer.
Faced with continuing loss of their lands and
the decline of hunting and fishing in the 19th
century, the Cherokee Indian Tribe and their
relatives, the Iroquois nations of New York
State and Canada, came up with a successful
survival strategy: they would sell tourists the
fancy Indian beadwork, wood carvings, and
beautiful baskets they had long done for
themselves. Tourists loved their Indian designs.
