    Cherokee History in Georgia
    Cherokee US - Southeast
    Today, some argue, we are at the dawn of a new era, one that will change the core of our society. Instances of cultural change on a societal level are rare in the history of the world. Europeans begin such a change in the 1400's, fueled by the ink of Gutenburg's printing press. Yet no society makes a change comparable to the dramatic cultural shift that the Cherokee accomplish in North Georgia from 1794 to 1835.

    Navajo US - Southwest
    A list of all Navajo Clans, spelled in Navajo, with its English meaning. When a Navajo baby is born, he or she belongs to the clan of the mother. The clan name passes on through her to her children. When a young man marries, it must be to someone completely outside of his clan. Even though people in his clan are not all blood-related, it is considered inappropriate to marry within one's own clan. This rule is strictly observed. Should it occur, it would be considered as "incest" to the Navajo people.

    Northspeakers - Native Americans of the Original Shasta County
    Wintu US - West
    Northspeakers is the English translation of the Wintu word 'wailakki'. 'wai' means north and 'lakki' means speaker. For many years, anthropologists have said that there were separate groups of people they named Hayfork Wintu, Wailakki, Lassik, and Cottonwood Wintu. Recent gatherings of descendants of the original people are comparing oral traditions. It is becoming apparent that the 'tribes' as described by anthropologists were originally Wintu who became 'scattered' when the gold miners and frontiersmen arrived and began their genocide. This site, continually evolving, is presenting 'our side' of the story. This site links to others which explain various views of the People of pre-history northern California.
