The Cherokee (ᏣᎳᎩ) --My People

I am (very) distantly part-Cherokee, on my mother's side of the family.  Here I'm collecting resources for those interested in learning about this incredible people who have suffered so much collective cultural, spiritual, and physical trauma, yet have persevered and kept their legacy alive to this day.  Currently, the Cherokee are the largest surviving Native American tribe in the United States.
