The Moon-Eyed People of the AllegheniesThe Cherokees say that before they conquered the country and settled in the valleys, the inhabitants were " moon eyed" and were unable to see during certain phases of the moon. It was during a period of blindness that the Creeks swept through the mountain passes, up the valleys, and annihilated the race. The Cherokees in turn conquered the Creeks with a great slaughter. No boundaries can be assigned to the land of any Indian tribe, however, the tribe was distinguished by two great geographical divisions, the Otari, signifying " among the mountains," and the Arati, signifying " lowland" There were sixty towns and 6,000 fighting men could at any time be called by the grand chief to the warpath.
