The Cherokee Tribe
The Cherokee tribe of Native American Indians are famous as one of "Five Civilized Tribes", because they had assimilated cultural and customs of white settlers and colonists. The "Five Civilized Tribes" were Cherokees, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole. The Cherokees refer to themselves as "Principal People". In 1831 the Five Civilised Tribes, which included the Cherokees, were forced to travel from their homelands in the Deep South to reservations in present day Oklahoma. The journey was over 1000 miles and became known as the Trail of Tears.
