Abstract
In the early nineteenth century, the Cherokee Nation was at a crossroads. The Cherokee had lived and thrived in the Smokey Mountains and its surrounding plateaus since the Delaware drove them from the north sometime around 1200 A.D. Some opted to farm the rocky soil of the Smokey Mountains while others moved south to the fertile plateaus.1 [fig 3] However, when the Europeans visited the region in the early sixteenth century and more so when Euro-Americans settled around and in the region from the eighteenth century onwards, the traditional Cherokee lifestyle changed drastically.
