Osiyo ale Tsilugi Oginalii
(Hello and Welcome Friends)
I am known as Didahnedi Gakanehoi,(dee-dah-hnay-dee gah-kah-nay-ho-ee) "She who bears Gifts", My Heart and Spirit walk the white path in all things, It is my responsibility, as Tsalagi, to hold and honor the ways of my ancestors. To teach these ways to my Children, so they in turn may teach them to their children and to generations to come.
Many people have spoken, the old ways are lost, I say, Grandfather Creator will restore these things to those who search with a pure and honorable heart. Many I know have this heart, We will once again sit in our council house, we will celebrate our festivals and we will draw closer to Creator.
Our Creator will be at work. He will rub the bow of peace against the drillboard of forgiveness in the hearts of the people, and the fire of love will spark once again. They will be reconciled to Him, and to Mother Earth, and to each other. The Sacred Hoop will finally be mended, and Mother Earth will be healed.
On these pages you will find information on a proud, honorable and resillent people who once walked this land, the Ani-Yvwiya, "Principal People".
We call ourselves Ani -Tsalagi, a word taken from tsalegi, "ridge," or "mountain ridge," that is pronounced jsa-lay-gee. You may know them as Cherokee.
It is my hope that you enjoy what you find here.
