Cherokee on the other hand
6 years ago

In 1838-39, the United States Government, to its great shame, forcefully relocated most of the Cherokee people from their homelands in the Carolinas to a reservation in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). It did this despite great efforts on the part of the people to peacefully coexist with the newcomers -- gold had been found in their mountains. Much of the journey took place on foot, resulting in many deaths and prompting the Cherokee name of the incident, "Trail of Tears."

Some few of the Cherokee managed to remain hidden deep within the mountains. These people became the Eastern, or Carolina, Cherokee; those that survived to make homes in Oklahoma are the Western, or Oklahoma, Cherokee.

Location of the tribes seems to play a difference in language here and, to me, does sound a little different. Found a clip from another movie: Trail of Tears. See what you think:

Originally, the Dances with Wolves film was to be set in Oklahoma and Texas, where the Comanches were indigenous. The desire to include the powerful scenes with the buffalo herd, however, led them to look northward. They found a large buffalo ranch near Pierre, South Dakota and modified the storyline, making the people Lakota (Sioux).One benefit of the change is the resulting Lakota dialogue for those interested in the language.

Thanks for your question Alice! I researched your questions to get answers myself and found the following:
The film "Dances with Wolves" is 'Anglicized' in parts (i.e. there were no plural marriages shown, which were common among the Plains tribes back then; the very "Christian" look of the wedding scene with the bride being escorted to the groom's tent, etc..no such fuss was made in reality; the marriage was agreed upon, a bride price was paid, and the lovers were then considered married without a formal ceremony involving the entire village), this was the first 'fly on the wall' insight into Lakota life and this movie did more to undo negative stereotypes of the Lakota than anything that had been made before.

What is the difference between the Cherokee Language and Lakota?

And how do you structure the sentences grammatically?

is it like Noun+verb+adjective etc or how does it work? and how many tenses are there?how do you construct the verbs? and how does the pronunciation/phonology work? lol sorry I'm nutz I know lol I just always dreamt to learn Native American Languages, but I know so little about them, it's so hard to find any info....please help!!!
