Inscription.
Ani-Gilohi—(Cherokee language translation)

People in this clan wore their hair long. They walked with confidence and were often leaders.

(Cherokee language translation)

CLAN FACTS: Throughout the large ancient Cherokee homeland of more than 140,000 square miles, clans organized the towns. Each clan sat together in the town house. If you traveled to another Cherokee town, your clan would take care of you providing food, hospitality and shelter.
