Re: Greetings
In Response To: Re: Greetings ()

There is an historic sketch in the Cherokee Advocate that tells the story of Crane Eater who lead a rebellion against then Principal Chief Oconastota. The attack was against the Peace Town of Chota where the chief resided. The Cherokees believe that Chota was a sacred town where no blood could be shed. It would make sense that a non-Cherokee would not hold the town in the same high esteem as Cherokees. I don't remember the particulars of the sketch and don't have it handy, but it was published sometime in the 1840s. I believe Crane Eater was a real person. He was described to me by Archie Sam as his ancestor and his name appears in our historic record as a rebellious chief.
