Junaluska (Tsunu’lahun’ski) was the spiritual leader of a band of Cherokees, living outside the Cherokee Nation in the Maggie Valley, NC until 1838. However, he was born near present day Dillard, GA and after the Trail of Tears lived in present day Graham County, NC. He was the founder of the Snowbird Clan of Cherokees, which have their own reservation.
Junaluska is best known for raising a company of 100 Cherokee soldiers to assist General Andrew Jackson in his military campaign against the Red Stick Creeks. He saved Jackson’s life in one battle and in the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, led an attack on the rear of the Red Stick village, which made escape impossible for the Creeks.
What is not generally known about Junaluska is that he was a haggi, (conjurer or sorcerer) in the traditional Cherokee religion. In their communal worship services, he conjured demons from flames in order to seek their guidance. He then interpreted what the demons were saying to those attending. The appearance of this religious practice is virtually identical to that of “speaking in tongues” in a Pentecostal Christian Church. I have personally observed both.
Charate Haggi of Tugaloo was a famous conjurer in the early 18th century. His name means “Sacred Fire People- Conjurer.” In December of 1715, he told the leadership of the embryonic Cherokees that they should kill the delegation of Muskogean leaders, who were their guests then switch sides to fight for the British in the Yamasee War. The demons promised that as a result the Cherokees would conquer a great empire. That, in fact, is what happened for exactly 20 years, then several, horrific smallpox plagues devastated their population. The Cherokee lost every war they fought after 1737. That they continued to exist at all was due to the constant protection of the Colony of South Carolina.
The Zoroastrian pronunciation of their word for “Sacred Fire” is identical to that of the Cherokee word for the same. I am convinced that the Cherokee tribe was never an ethnic group, but a religious-political movement that swept through the Appalachians in the late 1600s and early 1700s. It was most likely introduced by Zoroastrian refugees from the Middle East. This is why the Cherokees have no cultural memory before the early 1700s and are constantly trying to “steal” cultural symbols and town sites from the Creeks in Georgia.
The secret history of the Middle East
In 1492, Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians were the oppressed majorities in many areas of the Ottoman Empire. The current batch of prevaricating Muslim talking heads don’t tell you this, but an unimaginably brutal genocide of Christians and Zoroastrians occurred between 1500 and 1700 in the Middle East in order make these horribly persecuted, non-Muslim majorities, impotent minorities. Millions upon millions of Christians and Zoroastrians were either killed, castrated, enslaved or deported. The Muslims repeatedly launched massive invasions of Eastern Europe in attempts to destroy Christianity. There are many ways of explaining how some of these refugees ended up in the Appalachians.
Haggi means exactly the same in the Zoroastrian religion of the Middle East as it did in the Proto-Cherokee language. In fact, there are many shared, identical beliefs between Zoroastrianism and traditional Cherokee religion such as multiple layers of heaven and conjuring of demons within fires and springs. The primary difference is that Middle Eastern haggi were not supposed to conjure demons into harming other persons.
Conjuring of demons today
In contrast, the conjuring of demons against humans is currently endemic among the North Carolina Cherokees. The story they give tourists of traditional Cherokee religion being one of worshiping the Great Creator in a Judeo-Christian context is pure caca de toro.
While living among the Snowbird Cherokees in 2010, I saw things that tourists don’t see. Word quickly spread that I was homeless and penniless. The presumption was that since I had been evicted on Christmas Eve, I would be bitter toward the Master of Life and extremely vulnerable to indoctrination into the Cherokees’ secret demonic religion.
Now is as good as time as any to tell you the reason for the continued fabrication of Cherokee history by white satanists, New Agers and other sundry occultists. It is also the reason behind the bizarre opposition to the Mayas in Georgia Thing. They know about the Cherokee’s secret religious practices and therefore consider the North Carolina Cherokees their partners in crime. The demonic religion has also spread to some members of tribes in Oklahoma, including the Muskogees. When is the last time that you attended a Jewish or Christian funeral for an anthropology professor?
Based on what I observed, while among the North Carolina Cherokees in 2010, their current obsession with demonic spirits is the major cause of the widespread mental health afflictions in their population. That certainly also contributes to their generally abysmal physical health. In the process, they have literally given away the commercial portions of the Qualla Reservation to the Russian Mafia. This unclean spiritual environment has spread to all of western North Carolina. It is now called by law enforcement officers, the meth capital of the world.
The Cherokee conjurers are charlatans and predators that prey on the superstitions of a culturally isolated population that has a tendency toward bipolar disorder and diabetes anyway. They are like poisonous spiders, who destroy the lives of all who come into their webs. They are quickly bringing down the Cherokee people in North Carolina to total state of moral, physical and financial degradation.
Back in 2010, while I was standing in the “Creek Square” of the Oconaluftee Living History Village in Cherokee, NC, I caught out of the corner of my eye a conjurer trying to cast a demon on me. I turned around and whipped out the gorget hidden under my shirt. It signified that I was a Keeper of the Wind Clan.
The conjurer froze in terror and turned white as a ghost. He put his hand out in front to block his view of the gorget and my face. While walking backwards out of the square, he repeatedly chanted “What you say is untrue . . . what you say is untrue.” I had said absolutely nothing . . . but you better believe I am saying it now.
Once out of the square, the conjurer RAN completely out of Oconaluftee Village to the astonishment of the young Cherokee women working there. Apparently, he was assumed by them to be someone powerful. They looked at me like I was the Creature from the Black Lagoon, who gobbled up their hero.
FINAL SCORE: Master of Life – 7 . . . Cherokee Demons – 0

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history.Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.
