  • Rax Symelich So true, and yet so not Cherokee. Unknown to settlers who appropriate our native shit all the time (for example, here on FB you guys post images of our people with quaint phrases and proverbs a lot), the Cherokee did quite a bit of appropriating themselves. They raided other tribes almost constantly, enslaving their people, and stealing their culture. This particular proverb was stolen from my tribe, the Attignawantan. It's been attributed to Cherokee for at least 10-15 years now, and no one has bothered to change it.

    Mainly because it's just you settlers who appropriate it for your FB walls, and you don't usually care about which tribe's culture is being reduced to a sound byte. I guess though, since the Cherokee stole all their culture from other tribes, a sound byte is all they deserve.
