The Cherokee-Caribbean Connection
A 17th century French scholar wrote that the Caribs originated on the South Atlantic Coast in the ancient times associated with the Shell Rings. He said that most Caribs migrated southward. POOF researchers have linked the group that the Frenchman said was the descendants of Caribs, who remained in North America, with the Cherokees.
The other part of this bombshell is that we have discovered a linguistic and cultural link between the advanced cultures in the Amazon Headwaters region of eastern Peru, with a tribe living on the South Atlantic Coast and some villages mentioned by Pardo and de Soto in the Appalachian Mountains.
The statements made by the French scholar confirm a long time presence in the North Carolina Mountains by a few of the Cherokee bands, but completely negates their association with pottery making, mound building or permanent towns.
