By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     In the mountains of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee, lived the Cherokee. They were what we call woodland Indians.
2     Some people think the Cherokee made the first clay pots. They would dig the clay. Then they would shape it. When it was dry, they baked it in the fire.
3     Clay pots were used by people who did not move around much. They lived in one main place. They would cook or store corn in the pots.
4     The Cherokee made villages to live in. They had 30 to 60 homes in each village. It might take a whole day to walk to the next village.
5     In the middle of each village was a big house. This was the council house. That was where the people held meetings.
