BC: Want to explore the world of the Cherokee Native Peoples? Than open up this wonderfull book! It provides tons of facts and is a great study book! It is really a report for 3rd grade GT by myself for extra credit and a party. I only had three days to work on this. If something does not make sense please excuse me because my mixbook crashed with Alessandro's Mix book.

2: People When a man wished to be a hunter, he had to talk to a priest. They had a ceremony that was repeated every month. When all of the ceremonies were done they had to go to a sweating tent. After they were gasping for water, they immersed themselves in icy water. Then they were able to marry.
3: Girls learned to craft pottery bowls and weave baskets, they collected nuts and berries in the summer, and learned to cook in the winter. Boys were taught how to mend moccasins and how to use weapons. Women taught girls their early skills and made homes and blankets, cooked the food for the tribe and made baskets and bowls.
