Re: Nationalities WAS Re: [OT] Loremaster vs. Spectral Loremaster
- Though there are plenty of descendants elsewhere now, Cherokee
territory was originally in the USA Southeast. Georgia, the
Carolinas, and parts of Tennessee and Alabama. There are plenty of
others, though. Even in the same regions. I'm originally from
Alabama, and maybe a quarter of the local place names are from the
names of American Indian tribes. Sylacauga, Tuscaloosa, Talladega,
Choctaw, Cahaba, Chickasaw, Mobile, Opelika, Tallassee, Tuskegee,
Wedowee, Wetumpka, etc. These are just the ones with a web presence.
I'm primarily Scotch/Irish on both sides, with a trace of Cherokee
and German on one side, and a trace of Cherokee on the other. Since
several of the above native names have u's, they seem to pass the "u
test". Even USA has a "u" in it. Americans do understand the use of
the "u" key, they just show a little moderation with it. ;)
