TSALI PACE said about /name/Tsali - Hello my name is TSALI, named after my ancestor of the Cherokee people named TSALI, not saying I am a descendant of TSALI, if I was, what an honor that would be, and it is possible I could be. Anyway this is written to help clarify a few errors in the above information on TSALI. TSALI is actually a MASCULINE name, NOT FEMININE! It is a Cherokee indian name which means CHAH-LEE which translates to Charlie or Little Charlie or Charles. Here in the Appalachian mountains of Western NC and on the Qualla Boundary of the Eastern Band of Cherokee we pronounce the literal spelling as SA-LI, silent T. Others try to say or use the Western Band of Cherokee dialect or the Russian pronuciation of TSA which is ZA-LI or Zollie. We speak the original Cherokee tongue. Not until the last several decades has many actually learned to read and write in Cherokee due to the US government forbid it, so it's been kept alive orally for the past almost 200 years, until now where it is taught in school to the younger generations. The original TSALI gave his life to save the remainder of Cherokee Nation that were hiding out in the Smoky mountains of North Carolina. It was either he and his 2 older son's surrender to be exocuted by firing squad, because he and several others had attacked and killed 2 soldiers due to them more or less killing his wife and baby plus other I'll treatment of other Cherokee people. Otherwise the sorry Andrew Jackson would have ordered to kill or exterminate all the Cherokee people for their land due to the Federal Indian Removal Act of 1830, which began in 1831-1850 and included what is known as The 5 Civilized Nations of the Southeastern US, the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, Seminole, and Cherokee people. All other Cherokee were rounded up and marched west to Oklahoma in 1838-1839, which is known as The TRAIL OF TEARS. It's called this due to approximately 6,000 of the 16,543 relocated Cherokee. The reason behind the 1830 Indian Removal Act was due to the discovery of gold in Dahlonega, Georgia in 1828 and started the Georgia Gold Rush and white man's greed. Anyway, Come visit during the summer months to the Qualla Boundary of the Eastern Band of Cherokee in Cherokee, NC and go see the outdoor drama UNTO THESE HILLS and learn the history of the Cherokee people and the life of TSALI.
