Characteristics of the Cherokee Indians

Wes Studi is a full-blooded Cherokee who spoke only Cherokee until he went to school. After serving in Vietnam, he returned to Oklahoma where he worked as a reporter for The Cherokee Advocate. He became involved with the American Indian Movement and was at Wounded Knee in 1973. His interest in acting was spurred by his involvement with the American Indian Theatre Company in Tulsa. Studi then moved to Los Angeles and got small parts in television and movies.

Cherokee do not look much like other tribes of Indians, one of the myths of our name is that the word Cherokee means Those who came from far away, as the other Indians thought that we came from the sky.

"The Trail of Tears" was the forced relocation and movement of Native American nations from southeastern parts of the present-day United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. It has been described as an act of genocide. The phrase originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while on route to their destinations, and many died, including 4,000 of the 15,000 relocated Cherokee.
