Echota Cherokee History


The Cherokee are an indigenous people who historically lived, traveled, traded and hunted in a broad swath of the American southeast including parts of Alabama, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. 


During the 1800s a series of events caused the Cherokee people to be broken into several tribes, scattered across different parts of the United States.  Today, there are 3 federally recognized tribes and several state recognized tribes throughout multiple states.  Each tribe has its own tribal government and are independent of each other.  The Echota Cherokee Tribe is a state recognized tribe located in Alabama with members scattered throughout the United States.
