Cherokees are Indians; Native Americans. If slave holding was good enough for the White man, it damn sure was good enough for the Natives. You Tube says we're THE NATIVES. When you go to work, your boss is your slave holder. If you don't do what he wants, he won't beat your ass or hang you up on a tree, but he'll damn sure FIRE you and you'll have to look for other employment, if you like to eat, buy soap and wash and change your drawers.
