Redbird Band Community

THE CHEROKEE COMMUNITY OF REDBIRD BAND OF CHEROKEE IS DIVERSE, FROM FULL BLOOD AND MAJOR MIXED BLOOD LINKS TO MAJORITY BLACK AND WHITE AND LATINO LINKED CHEROKEE GROUPS OFTEN WITH SOME CONNECTION TO AARON REDBIRD, WHO WAS KNOWN BY VARIOUS NAMES. HE WAS IN BATTLES AROUND KINGS MOUNTAIN (SC/NC) IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION WITH OTHER CHEROKEE CHIEFS LIKE KING BENGE AND CHEROKEE CHIEF DOUBLEHEAD. THE OVER THE MOUNTAIN MEN HAD INDIAN UNITS AS PART OF THE COLONIAL ARMY THAT DEFEATED THE BRITISH ARMY AND TORIES IN THE SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS. GEORGE WASHINGTON LATER VISITED THE AREA AND PAID TRIBUTE TO THE AMAZING VICTORY. REDBIRD HIMSELF HELPED BEAT THE REDCOATS. CHIEF REDBIRD MAY HAVE ALSO BEEN CALLED RED FEATHER.

Aaron Redbird

Aaron moved far and wide, with multiple wives, families and fighting alongside Colonials in the U.S. American Revolution.  His totem included Redbird. Aaron assisting his people along with Redbird captains like Benge or Chief Bench or Bing, among other chiefs or captains.  The Cherokee have always been connected to Cannatuckahoe or Kentucky, Cantaki, as well as other Southern areas.  It is likely he knew Cherokee War Chief Dragging Canoe, and Chief Butterfly. Dragging Canoe, a founder of The Chickamauga and Creeks, has very strong links to southeast Kentucky. Canoe, KY is named for Dragging Canoe, not a U.S. military figure. Canoe, KY, in Breathitt County, also has connections to the community of Thousandsticks, KY. Thousandsticks is named for The Redsticks. The warrior class, with Wolf Band links, protected the Tribe when possible. The Redsticks are The Red Lance in Chickamauga and Creek history, as well as CN and allied groups. Thousandsticks, KY is in Leslie County, between Clay County and Perry County. The Redsticks, with over 1,000 warriors, resided in the area prior to some relocating to Alabama.  Chief Butterfly, a signer of the Cherokee Treaty of 1798 with Cherokee Chiefs like The Prince and a Cherokee with the Keen family in his name, and others, is linked to the Kentucky community of Butterfly in Perry County, near Hazard, KY. Chief Butterfly is related to Cherokee Martin families and Butterfly Bush or Butterfly Plant or Weed, and Butterfly Medicine and the Red, Yellow, and other Butterflies of nature, insects like the Snake Doctor. Chief Butterfly, The Canoe and others operated in the same area of Kentucky as Aaron Redbird (Aaron Brock or Sizemore), and in the same era.  Cherokee Tribe has always claimed Kentucky. As descendants of the Cherokee Emperors, Cherokee Kings, Cherokee Tuckahoes, King Powhatan and the Cherokee Royal Families, with links to Chera Empire, The Po and Panky or Panka and the ruling native councils, we are their descendants. Our past includes Aaron Redbird, a relative of Doublehead and Moytoy himself. The Doublehead Kings lived in Kentucky (see Doublehead Creek in present Clay County, KY), and other Cherokee areas. The history of Canatackahoe is our history, Cherakee history is real and is also now.
