We are Cherokee
We believe in the same customs and traditions that many Cherokees do, but we have elected to take a step aside from modern times. We have elected to pause and reassess our lives in order to secure the future for our children.
The spirits have spoken and directed us to this place. It is the spirits that have said to seek the ancients and to follow the ways of the wolf. This is the way that it was in the beginning before there were Cherokee. Many Cherokees today have forgotten the instructions and they are just winging it. One thing is certain, Those that claim to be Cherokee but that have no knowledge of what it means to be Cherokee, will make it up as they go along. There are too many agendas foreign to what is Cherokee. Too many concepts that are practiced that are detrimental to our people. The concept of conservative vs. liberal or black vs white or Christian vs non Christian are all foreign to the wolf. There is only the wolf. They live for their pack and stay away from anything they deem harmful to their self or family. These things I have mentioned are indeed harmful to us.
We are not winging it folks. We study the wolf as closely as we can in our given environment. We study research and documentaries and even live among them when we can. We were instructed to learn from them and we have learned much already. Their knowledge and the instruction from the ancient spirits will guide us in our everyday lives. The tribes came to be because our ancestors studied the wolf which led them to become the early Cherokees.
The spirits have spoken and directed us to do it in this way. Step aside: watch and learn: adapt and overcome! We will succeed in this endeavor because it is the will of the ancients to see us through eternity. I was told that you cannot travel backwards in time. You must go forward but perhaps on a different path. The path we have chosen to follow is behind the wolf. He will lead us back to the people we lost long ago. You cannot travel backwards in your circle of time to arrive at what was Cherokee. You must make a new revolution of the circle along a different path, to arrive at what is Cherokee.
We pray that the Ancients will guide those living in the old way to find us, and bring us closer to what is Cherokee. We are willing to learn from the elders and we are following the Wolfs instruction, but we can never complete the journey without assistance from the real people in the old way.
It has been instructed for us to step aside and wait: study the wolf. It was instructed that the people will find us. You do not wait for the wolf to come to teach you, you must go to the wolf. We have done this and people will come to our society in the same manner. Some of those people will have knowledge to share but we have to be cautious of what we learn from them. Because the wolf teaches us to be wary of what we do not know. The true teachers will understand this and will take care to ensure we only learn what is truly Cherokee or specifically of the wolf, so we can all go home together.
