  • Southeast Woodlands
    In the Southeast near the Smokey Mountains there is beautiful land. A lot of that beautiful land is the forest. The temperature and amount of rain there is just right so the area is good for crops and since the soil is so good you could grow many gardens. This gorgeous land is filled with streams, valleys, and fields. There are also many extremely tall mountains. One of the tribes that lived in this wonderful land is the Cherokee!

Some of the things they grew in their gardens were beans, squash, corn, and gourds. Sometimes they even hollowed out the gourds for storage. Also when they had to they ate nuts.

    The Cherokee wore deer and bear skin clothing, but after the settlers came they traded and got cloth. With the cloth they made skirts that went down to their ankles for the girls, long trousers for the men, and button up shirts for both of them. The Cherokee had many accessories, they beaded their own jewelry and wore a lot of it. Sometimes they wore scarves as belts. Also the chiefs wore headdresses and at festivals most people wore coyotes fur as hats.

  • Farming
    The Cherokee say the Great Spirit gave them their wonderful land. Because they always had a lot to do they shared all the work. They made all the supplies they needed for farming. Cherokee children went to school, they were also one of the smartest tribes so they knew how to work the machines when the settlers came along. In 1770 the Cherokee had 22,000 cattle, 7,600 horses,46,000 pigs, and 2,500 sheep. Thy also had 2,943 plows, and 172 wagons.
