(Cherokee language translation)

Clan Facts: Your clan came from your mother. People of the same clan could not marry each other, so your father would have been from another clan. Your mother’s brothers, your uncles, might have more to do with raising you than your father.

Also see . . .  Blue Clan (Wikipedia). The Anisahoni, or Blue Holly Clan, subdivisions were Panther, or Wildcat, and Bear, probably in origin two separate clans that were later consolidated with a third. Historically, this clan produced many people who were able to make special medicines for the children. The medicine was made from a blue plant which is where the clan gained its name.
