2: One day as the English men were working,I managed to slip into their work site. I thought that the English men were very nice and wanted to be friends with us, the Cherokee Indians, because I heard them say it.
4: Since I am the chief's daughter, I went to convince my father to help the English men survive over the winter.
6: After I finally finished begging and pleading with my father, he finally agreed to help them.
7: Father and the other Indians became friends with the English men. They both were helpful to each other.
8: One day father told the Englishmen that they could only have a small amount of food from them. The head of the English men didn't like it, but took what he was told to take for now.
10: After a while the English men came back very angry,and took all of our food.They said that they didn't want to hurt or kill anyone. They had guns ,knifes,and other kinds of weapons, but they didn't hurt or kill anybody.They just took all of our food,that everyone had worked hard for to harvest for the winter.
12: Father was very angry at the Englishmen, because they had betrayed him and the rest of our people. I felt really bad because after all, I was the one to convince father to help the Englishmen. I told father if he would have given them more food, then it wouldn't have happened.
14: Father's men went out to to find the head of the Englishmen, to bring him back and kill him. They brought him back. They had his head on a stomp. I ran as hard as I could down the the hill to stop the terrible incident.
16: As I ran down the hill,I slipped right along the English men's back, where they were about to slice him up.
18: My father asked me what I was doing. I told him I was saving the\is man's life. He said to me ''Maya you are a brave child. since you have done this for this man I shall treat him as my own,but if he does anything harmful he shall be killed.''
