Eastern Band of Cherokee Nation Flag

The Cherokee native name is Ani-Yun’wiya, meaning “principal people.” The name “Cherokee” is likely derived from the Choctaw word Tsalagi meaning “People of the Land of the Caves.” The Cherokees historically inhabited much of eastern Kentucky, North and South Carolina, eastern Tennessee, Georgia, and northern Alabama.
