Proof that Yonah Mountain and Walasi-yi Gap were named by white people
Why do the heathen rage?
When four years ago, I published an article that mentioned the fact that Yahoola Creek near Dahlonega, GA was a Creek word . . . the official title of the leader of Sacred Black Drink ceremonies . . . there was outrage among the self-described Cherokees of that region. Two blond, gray-eyed “Cherokees,” originally from Tennessee, showed up at my cabin and threatened to do me physical harm. A local Cherokee tribe composed of descendants of a white man from South Carolina, who two centuries ago married a woman, who was a most 1/32nd Cherokee, but more likely Sephardic Jewish, threatened to sue me. Then they began the same type of satanic activities that are self-destructing the Cherokees in North Carolina . . . casting spells and conjuring demons at the same time as using such high tech things as ultrasonic dog attraction devices and electro-magnetic pulse beams.
Periodically, one of the local self-described Cherokees would get drunk late at night then send me expletive filled emails. Somehow, in his sick mind, he equated being able to read a Muskogee-Creek dictionary to being a Librul Marxist and pervert.
A bleach blond female blimp, who was both a self-described Cherokee and an admirer of Adolf Hitler, would drive her car along side mine and scream profanities. I understood very little of her raging words. She had one of those East Tennessee, Kentucky or West Virginia mountain accents that sounds like the speaker’s mouth is filled with chewing tobacco. Her pickup was plastered with Cherokee, Christian gun rights and white supremacist slogans, plus there were several traditional German NAZI symbols. You go figure. If one is really Cherokee, one is not Caucasian.
When it really got weird was when the degenerate descendants of the Appalachian Moonshine Culture decided that being Creek Indian made me a Yankee. Grannies! I was born in the Okeefenokee Swamp. All my gg-grandfathers fought in the Confederate Army. From then on, they began parading their Confederate flag clad pickups in my face as if I was some easily frightened civil rights lawyer from New York City.
Apparently, all the rats in my previous hovel were being attracted by an ultrasonic device. I purchased an ultrasonic detection device to pinpoint locations of the ultrasonic dog attractors and poisoned dog bait. However, I picked up another ultrasound in the cabin, which at the time I assumed was background noise, but it is not present in this residence.
Jesus didn’t write the phony history in Southeastern textbooks
At any rate, the maps speak for themselves. Yonah Mountain and Walasi-yi Gap had Creek Indian names until after the area was occupied by white settlers . . . mostly from North Carolina and South Carolina.
Do some etymological research yourself and it will become immediately obvious that these names were assigned by whites, who were using a dictionary from a dialect of Cherokee only spoken in certain parts of North Carolina. The Cherokee, spoken today in Oklahoma, was the language spoken by Cherokees, who left Georgia on the Trail of Tears. The person or persons, who assigned the names, Yonah and Walasi-yi actually knew very little about the Cherokee language. The primary Cherokee word for bear in Oklahoma is alisokaládi. Yona is their word for a grizzly bear. The primary Cherokee word for frog is walosi not walasi. The Native American village of Frogtown was in present day Lumpkin County, GA and was located on Yahoola Creek. Yahoola is a Creek word! There are NO frogs at Walasi-yi Gap. It is on a dry slope of Blood Mountain.
