Notes for KANA-GA-TOGA "OLD HOP":
[Brøderbund WFT Vol. 6, Ed. 1, Tree #1229, Date of Import: Oct 8, 1999]

Also known as "Fire King" of Echota, Cherokee National East - "Old Hop" (chief or "Emperor" of the Cherokees - ancient cherokees also called their leaders "Kings")

Source - "Heritage of the Hills" - a Delaware Cty., Oklahoma History - page 214.

He was known as "Old Hop" because of his limp.

Old Frontiers pg. 67

Old Hop in his talk to Demere, gave his usual evidence of patriotism. He said: "I am now old and lie upon a bad bearskin. My life is not more than an inch long, and I know not when a bullet may cut it short. I want my brothers Captains Demere and Stuart to remember that the great warrior Oconostota and his brother Amo-Scossite are the only two men in the nation that ought to be thought of after my death. It is true that Willenawah and the Little Carpenter are my nephews, but I do not know how they would behave. If I had not remembered what I owe to a country I love, and had in mind to behave like a father, I would recommend my two sons, but I know them to be incapable, and biased by every lie that comes. I do not know how they will turn out, but I do know the others, for drunk or sober, they always admonish the indians to love the white people.

Notes for ATTA-KULLA-KULLA:
Attakullakulla, Supreme Chief of the Cherokee 1760 --1775. b Died. Attakullakulla or Little Carpenter, was 'Civil' or 'White' Chief, and lived in Chota. In 1735 he was taken , along with a small group of other Cherokees, to visit London. The Indians delighted the English residents and had their own eyes broadly opened to the attributes and strengths of white civilization. When they returned home, the English traders and officials made the most of this and over the next twenty years carefully cultivated the Cherokees by offering to help whenever the Cherokees needed it. Attakullakulla was especially responsive and in 1757 he would be instrumental in persuading the Governor of South Carolina to construct Fort Loudon to strengthen England's control over the area and to encourage more trade between the Cherokee and the Eastern coastal towns. In addition, the Chief invited at this time several more traders to set up headquarters in Chota and to take Cherokee wives.

Was called Little Carpenter because of his skill at negotiating, sources said it was as if he were building compromises.

Notes for DRAGGING CANOE:
While a young boy, this future Chief wanted to accompany his father, Atta-kulla-kulla, and a Cherokee War Party going to battle with the Shawnee. Atta-Kulla-Kulla flatly refused the young boy permission to go; but he slipped away from home ahead of the War Party and hid out in a dugout canoe he knew the warriors must use. When the warriors arrived at the portage and discovered the determined lad, there was much teasing. Atta-Kulla-Kulla told his son that if he could carry the canoe across the portage he could go along; so the young boy grabbed one end of the canoe and started dragging it through the sand. The excited warriors shouted encouragement, saying
"Tsi yu Gansi.ni, Tsi.yu Gansi.ni" which translated means " he is dragging the canoe" and Dragging Canoe was his name from then on.
Dragging Canoe was one of the Cherokee's greatest warriors, ever. From the day of his declaration of a "dark and bloody settlement" during the Sycamore Shoals Treaty (1775), the Canoe never wavered from his avowed purpose of driving the Americans from Cherokee land. He had consistently refused to sign any treaty, deeds or barter away any of the land of his people. His statement to the Shawnee Delegation "WE ARE NOT YET CONQUERED" is still being repeated to this day.

Notes for WILDROSE NANCY WARD:
Also known as Nancy
[Brøderbund WFT Vol. 2, Ed. 1, Tree #2009, Date of Import: Apr 25, 1998]

Nancy Ward b. About 1738, d. 1822 She was a Full blood of the Wolf Clan, born in Chota, the City of Refuge and Capitol of the Cherokee Nation. Great grandfather was Moytoy of Tellico Supreme Chief 1730 -- 1760. Moytoy's second daughter, born about 1663 and her husband, The "Raven" of Chota were Nancy's grandparents. Nancy holds a position of great significance in Cherokee history. In 1738, Tame Do (the sister of Attakullakulla) and her husband, thought to be a Delaware Indian brave or Chief ( who died early in her life) gave birth to a daughter named Nancy, who in time became the last true Ghi Ga U or Beloved Woman of the Cherokees, and in who in her views regarding Cherokee and white relationships was an ally of Little Carpenter (Attakullakulla). In the early 1750's, she married the noted war leader, Kingfisher of the Deer Clan, and was at his side when in 1755 he was killed by Creek warriors at the battle of Taliwa. She immediately picked up his weapons and rallied the Cherokee warriors to overwhelming victory. Her first tangible reward was a black slave who had been left behind by the retreating Creeks, and legend has it that this was the beginning of black slavery among the Cherokees. Back at Chota, she was chosen to fill the vacant position of a Beloved Woman. It was believed that the Supreme Beings often spoke to the people through the beloved women, and they were given absolute power in the question of what to do with prisoners taken in war, a power exclusive to Ghi Ga U. Nancy did not hesitate to use the power. She was also head of the influential woman's council that consisted of a representative from each clan, and she sat as a voting member of the council of chiefs. In the late 1750's, about 1759, she married an already wed white trader named Bryant Ward, who before 1760 left her and returned to his white wife and children in South Carolina. In 1772, an English diplomat named Robertson visited Nancy's home at Chota, which he described as being furnished in a barbaric splendor that befitted her high rank. She was then thirty - five years old and he pictured her as "queenly and commanding"(Mooney -Myths of the Cherokee pg. 204 )

In June 1776, Dragging Canoe, Abraham and Raven ,Cherokee War Chiefs, with 250 warriors each, at the instigation of the British, planned to attack Western settlements Ghi-Ga-u warned the settlers of the impending attacks, then on July 20, 1776, Abraham, marching to attack Watauga in East Tennessee , captured Mrs. William Bean, mother of the first white child born in Tennessee. When the war party returned to Cherokee Country, Mrs. Bean was condemned to be burned at the stake. She was conducted to the top of a mound that stood in the center of Tuskeegee, which was located just above the mouth of the Tellico or Little Tennessee River. Bound at the stake, faggots piled around, torch about to be applied, Ghi Ga u appeared , cut the thongs and took the captive to her home, where Mrs. Bean taught her how to keep house and make butter. As soon as it was safe, Ghi Ga u sent her brother, Tuskeegeeteehee, or Longfellow of Chistatoa andher son Hiskyteehee, or Fivekiller sometimes called Littlefellow, to escort Mrs. Bean to her husband. Numerous settlements had been made on Cherokee land, in direct violation of royal decree from England. When the Revolutionary War broke out, the Cherokees again sided with the English. In 1776, the Cherokees prepared to attack simultaneously the frontier settlements of Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia. The responsibility assigned to 700 warriors from chota was to strike the settlers who lived in the Watuga area. As much for the Cherokees' sake as for that of the settlers, Nancy Ward helped Isaac Thomas, William Fawling and another white man to escape from Chota to warn the Watugans in time to build fortifications. This act established Nancy's reputation as a friend of the settlers. When in October 1776 Colonel William Christian led nearly 2,000 troops in a devastating raid, out of respect for Nancy Ward he spared Chota, while most of the other Cherokee towns were ravaged.In 1780, at a time when most of the Watauga men were away from home and engaged in the King's Mountain campaign, at the same time, the frontier rear guards became short on rations and Nancy Ward agreed to supply beef and had some cattle driven in, the Cherokees again prepared to attack the settlements in the Watauga area. Nancy Ward warned the whites a second time, but when the soldiers returned from King's Mountain and learned of the threat, they were enraged, and set out to teach the Cherokees a lesson they would never forget. Despite Nancy Ward's pleas for mercy and friendship, Chota was destroyed along with other towns, and for a short time she and her family were placed in protective custody. When they were released, they returned to help rebuild the town, and on July 20, 1781, she was the featured speaker for the Cherokees when the reeling people reluctantly accepted a peace treaty with the Wataugans. When the Treaty of Hopewell was made in South Carolina in 1785, she offered another dramatic plea for continued peace between the Indians and the whites. Once the unhappy war years were ended she lived in Chota, where although it was no longer the capitol of the nation, it was still a city of refuge, and from all over the nation she took into her home orphaned and homeless waifs, including mixed breeds. Nancy Ward died in 1822,(see below) a truly remarkable woman who learned a permanent place of honor in Cherokee and white history"( The Cherokee People pp. 193 - 194)
Ghi Ga u conducted an inn at the Womankiller ford of the Ocowee River for many years and became quite wealthy; her property consisted of livestock, slaves and money. Travelers called her "Granny Ward" because of her age and that she was the widow of Bryant Ward Nancy grew too old to meet with council and other chiefs, she sent her servant to take her walking stick, her badge of authority, to her appointed seat in the council building to assure that her spirit was there, most notably the council at Amoah, May 6, 1817, the renunciation of her delegated rights and in favor of the first Constitutional Enactment of the Cherokees. Nancy Ward died at her home at the Womankiller ford, in the spring of 1822. Her grave site, a designated state park, is located on a knoll next to U. S. Highway 411, just South of Benton, Tennessee, Buried beside her son, Fivekiller, a veteran of the War of 1812, and her brother Longfellow. Her grave site overlooks the site where Nancy ran her inn, where the old Unicoy Pike crossed the Ocoee River.( the Pike was the main road from Knoxville into Northern Georgia and was a popular resting place for travelers)

NOTE: Tuskeegee is the town name of one of the original 8 subdivisions of the Cuesta peace town of the Coosas, primal mother tribe of the Muskogees (Creeks) Choctaws, Chickasaws, and Seminoles. The suffix " tee hee " means killer, therefore, Ghi Ga u 's brother was " Tuskeegeekiller, known to the English by the descriptive name of Longfellow, because of his stature. Hisky is Cherokee for the number 5.
The Chattanooga, Tennessee Nancy Ward Chapter of the Daughters of the
American Revolution placed a brass plaque on Nancy's grave in 1926. The Polk County and State centennial Commission honored Nancy as an American Patriot by placing a plaque near her grave that reads:

" THE WILD ROSE OF THE CHEROKEE"
Nancy ward, Princess and prophetess of the Cherokee Nation, Pocohontas of Tennessee, constant friend of the American Pioneer, had as her main objective, promoting peace between the Cherokees and the Pioneers. In 1776 she warned the settlers on the Watauga holst Rivers of the impending attack by the Cherokees. She also saved Mrs. William Bean from being burned at the stake. During the Indian outbreak of 1780, she helped many prisoners escape and often supplied starved prisoners with food. She was queenly and commanding in appearance and manner, tall, erect, and beautiful with an imperious and kindly air........."
