Re: Shawnee & Cherokee relationship/status
In Response To: Re: Shawnee & Cherokee relationship/status ()
Just a small note to add. Some of my Creek ancestors were Shawnee who had become part of the Creek Nation long before the Andrew Jackson's removal of Creek people. My great grandmother still carried the Mvskoke word for Shawnee as her birth name. Mary 'Sarwanoke'. Some of my elder cousins today from the Eufaula area says they know from old stories that we have a direct descent from the Sarwanoke people who had a claimed to Tecumseh. I have never seen any documentation but not all stories were recorded. Good luck with your research.
