Wolf’s Mom, Princess A-Ga-Li-Ha of the Yonah Clan, is a most interesting Cherokee woman. Most often in a Cherokee marriage it was the man who went to the woman’s home after they’d gotten married. In her case, she married the son of a tribal elder, so she chose to move to Dancing Bear’s home in Choestoe. Many in her clan did not approve of her leaving since she was the daughter of the Principal Chief. It was seen by many as contrary to their heritage, and it was. She didn’t care, though. She loved her husband.
A-Ga-Li-Ha is a strong woman who knew when to speak and when to stay quiet concerning tribal issues. Her being raised by the Yonah chief gave her a knowledge of proper thinking and behavior during important times. Most council members wanted to know how she felt on matters when they held talks. Dancing Bear was wise. He would listen to his wife. Let her talk. She came from a long line of true warriors and she’d seen how clans must come together in times of struggle to survive. She worked hard, as all Indian women did, but her family came first. She would visit her clan across the big ridges to the south a few times each year. She came from a big family having several brothers and sisters. Her parents lived a long life dying in their old age of natural causes. To her, family was life.
