Abstract:
The Cherokee peoples’ religious views of fire and the sun are analyzed. The article uses the observations of Cherokee religious practices observed and written by Alexander Longe in 1725, James Adair in 1775, and John Howard Payne and Dr. Samuel Butrick between 1825 and 1840. The observations discuss the fire and sun cults within Cherokee religious practices.
