The Cherokee are a part of the Iroquoian Language family.
The Cherokee had matrilineal clans. In some religious studies
it is believed that their main deity, the Sun God, was actually
female and a Goddess. A household consisted of a mother, her
husband, the married sisters and their husbands and children,
and unmarried sons. Children were not considered blood relatives
of their fathers, but only a blood relative to their mother.
Both men and women had a high degree of sexual freedom. After
marriage, the couple goes to live with her mother and in divorce
the man had to return home to live with his own mother. There
were incidents of polygyny. Women could be chiefs, participate
in war councils and war parties. Men would pluck all facial
hair off their faces. During pregnancy, the mother-to-be had
a ceremonial bath under every new moon prior to the baby's
birth. After the baby was born, the infant was bathed daily.
