Native American Histories: The Cherokees
The Cherokee people have lived in North America for hundreds of years, and their long history includes both triumph and tragedy. Driven from their ancient homeland in the southeastern United States by white settlers in the 1800s, the Cherokees survived to create a new government and a new life. Today the Cherokee people live all over the United States and fill all walks of society. With a rich traditional culture and a thriving modern community, Cherokees look back on their history with pride and ahead to their future with hope.
