You have the Cherokee confused with another group. The Cherokee were businessmen. They owned property and built houses. Sequoyah ran a newspaper and taught children the Cherokee alphabet underneath Spanish Oaks in Valley Head. They fought along side Andrew Jackson in the War of 1812. The Cherokee defered to the US government and petitioned to join the Union and become a state governed by John Ross.
The Cherokee are the role model for assimilation, but that wasn't the real issue against the Cherokee. The problem was gold was discovered in Dalonega, which was Indian territory.
it was a troll response, not a serious one.
