Fire and the Spirits
Cherokee Law From Clan to CourteBook - 1982
This text chronicles the origins of the Cherokee system of laws form the ancient spirit decrees to the merging of tribal laws and Anglo-American law. These Indians enacted their first law in 1808 in Georgia. They later wrote a constitution, established courts and enacted laws that were in accord with the old tribal values and that reflected the whiteman's legal system.
