The Cherokee are a matrilineal society.  Children belong to their mother’s clan.



The Long Hair Clan is also known as the Twister, Hair Hanging Down, Wind, and Stranger Clan.  They provide most of the Peace Chiefs.  Because of their beautiful hair, this group is also known for its vanity.  Prisoners of war, orphans, and strangers are usually adopted into this family.
