Indigenous Peoples

The Cherokee are a Native American people, originally from the Southeastern United States (principally Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina). Currently there are three federally recognized Cherokee tribes: the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina, the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians, also in Oklahoma.
