Seven Clans. I am Bird Clan. For some, stating one's clan is not done because of the fear of conjuring; for others, clan is not stated because they believe that Christianity and traditional beliefs should never be mixed; for people like me, stating one's clan is acceptable because clan represents many values, including hospitality. I am a Christian Cherokee woman who is proud of clan.
