Title: Constitution of the Cherokee Nation, 1827 Jul. 24, New Town Echota
Scribe : Sam Houston
Date Created: 1827-07-24
Abstract: The following document is the constitution drafted on July 24, 1827 that sparked the beginning of the modern Cherokee Nation. The document was a product of a Constitutional Convention of 1827, headed by John Ross, who was elected the first Chief of the Cherokee Nation when the constitution was put into effect the following year. In the constitution, which was largely patterned after the United States`, the Cherokees referred to themselves as a sovereign entity and outlined three branches of government. Although the Constitution of the Cherokee Nation was largely developed in order to prevent the forced removal of the Cherokee, it was only ten years after its adoption that the Cherokee were ultimately displaced.

Title: Proceedings with the Cherokees, Tellico Block House, December, 1794 & January, 1795
Attributed name : Silas Dinsmoor
Attributed name : William Blount
Attributed name : the Bloody Fellow
Date Created: 1794-12-28 - 1795-01
Abstract: A copy of the President`s Certificate respecting the Bounds of the Chickasaws Lands. Beginning Dec 28, 1794, a record of the minutes of treaty negotiations between Governor William Blount, Silas Dinsmoor, and John McKee and Agents to the Cherokees and several Cherokee leaders including the Bloody Fellow. The first page has a list of those present that day, starting with Blount. Blount first states that the negotiations are for a trade of prisoners and peace in the future, with the understanding that there has been many injuries on each side in the past. Blount urges the tribes to move to the Chatanuga mountain and join the Creek tribes. The talks the next few days center on prisoner trading. The Bloody Fellow states that he does not want to move and live with the Creek tribes, and urges Blount to accept a treaty brokered with Dinsmoor. In January the two speak to the posts erected around the Indian settlement which the settlers find comforting but the Indians find restrictive to hunting. Blount accused Bloody Fellow of stealing horses, and Bloody Fellow says if whites want to see their horses they should go to North Carolina. The next day Blount states that the treaties are settled but the Cherokee should help broker a peace with the Creeks whom the Cherokee are not in accord with. The talks discuss the relationship of Tennessee with the other tribes and the difficulties that arise from the tribes and whites sharing the land. They also discuss at length prisoners, and the desire for peace.
