The article by John Wall went out by mistake. We were considering sending

it in his magazine

Cherokee is the approved anglicised from of the name rendered Tsalagi
in the Cherokee laanguage, a name found spelled in nearly fifty
different ways in historical records. One authority has suggested
that the term was probably applied to the Cherokee from the language
of a Muskhogean tribe to signify "people of a different speech." The
Choctaw, whose language was long the trade medium in the Southeast,
called the Cherokee CHALAKKI, this having been recorded in early
Spanish records as the name of the "Province of Chalaque," a part of
the historic habitation of the tribe in what is now western North
Carolina, which was visted byt he De Soto in 1540. Since the
Cherokee were a mountain people living in the Southern Appalachian
highland, the usual interpretation of Chalakki has been "cave
people," from the Choctaw work chuluk or chiluk meaning cave. The
name is analagous to "Rock People" of the ancient Huron, a related
Iroguoian confederacy, among whom the "Tobacco Nation," suggests that
the Cherokee term Tsalagi might be mnemonic signifying "Ancient
Tobacco People," from their name for wild tobacco tsal-agayun li from
the Cherokee words tsalu, "tobacco" and agayun li, "old" or "ancient".
The Cherokee refern to themselves in their own language as Ani-Yun
wiya meaning principal people. In some of the oldest tribal
ceremonials, they referred to themselves an Ani Kitu' hwagi,
signifying " People of Kituwha. The Cherokee are well built, are
primarily of the "round hed" type, and are medium to tall in height.
The fullblood men usually have more of an olive than a dark
complexion, and some of the women are fairer, the tribe having been
noted for its beautiful girls, especially among the mixed bloods.
The Cherokee are known for their quick tempers, and some of their
friends have said that they are shrewd and crafty in their dealings.
They are steady and dignified in their deportment and cheerful in
disposition. They have been noted for their bravery and courage in
defense of their country and in the maintenance of their rights as a
people. A Cherokee legend that tells of a prehistoric migration from
a land toward the rising sun was lost a a very early period.
