Buffalo Clan – Brown Region
The Buffalo Clan (Anikawi) was also known as the Deer Clan. Deer hunters, trackers, tanners, and seamers, as well as keepers of the deer medicines were members of this clan. Even though they hunted game for sustenance, they respected and cared for animals. They were also known as fast runners and foot messengers delivering messages from village to village. The Cherokee wrapped their new born in different animal skin: male infants were wrapped in cougar skins while females were wrapped in deer or buffalo skins. The Cherokee created the game of Stick Ball which later became known as Lacrosse. The game has a spiritual aspect which involves magical battles between shamans who use rituals and ceremonies to gain advantage. The Clan color is brown and their wood is Oak.
The Deer Teepee is suitable for a couple with a queen bed which sleeps 2. Linens are provided. Located away from the facilities and fire pit makes this teepee one of the more secluded.
The Buffalo Clan members were the deer hunters, trackers, tanners and seamers. The women of this clan often adopted fawns and raised them as pets. Many participants of NORTH GEORGIA CANOPY TOURS™ have seen deer on the property while zipping!
