If it makes you all feel better to think there was no Muslım influence ın the Cherokee trıbe thtis fıne, but having grown up with the Cherokee ggrandmother plus Eng Irısh Scots nd German ancestry only to fınd that I m 57% Turkısh and Middle eastern DNA wıth 2% NAö and documented ancertsy going back to 16somethıng on all sides except the Irish, and that I looked enough like Saladin to be his twin sister, I would suggest that you read up on the Melungeons and the fact that the Cherokee leaders were always known to be of mixed race before Stand. You can,t believe everything you read ın the history books at school and modern science is proving that every day.
