“To be clean in body and spirit, they "went to water," bathing often in clear pools and mountain streams. They considered water, the sun, and fire to be holy gifts of Kanati, the Great Spirit.”
Raymond Bial, The Cherokee

“As the Cherokee hunted and foraged in these mountains, they always stepped lightly, paying homage to the plants and animals that sustained them.”
Raymond Bial, The Cherokee

“Communities were linked by seven networks of trails over which the Cherokee traveled to trade goods with the Iroquois, Chickasaw, Catawba, and other tribes as far away as the Gulf of Mexico.”
Raymond Bial, The Cherokee
