The Cherokee are a people from North America, who at the time of European contact in the seventeenth century, inhabited what is now the Eastern and Southeastern United States. Most were forcibly moved westward to the Ozark Plateau. They were one of the tribes referred to as the Five Civilized Tribes. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, they are the most numerous of the 563 federally recognized Native American tribes in the United States. (Quote from

About the Author

James Mooney (1861 - 1921)
James Mooney (1861-1921) was an American anthropologist who lived for several years among the Cherokee. He was born at Richmond, Indiana. In 1885 he became connected with the Bureau of American Ethnology at Washington, D.C. He compiled a tribal list containing 3,000 titles. His most notable work was his ethnographic study of the Ghost Dance, a widespread religious movement among various Native American culture groups that ended in 1890 with a bloody massacre of Lakota people at Wounded Knee, South Dakota.
