The Smoky Mountains - Why they are covered with smoke - Part 1
Before Selfishness came into the world...that was a long time ago...the
Cherokee were happy using the same hunting and fishing lands as their
neighbors. But all this changed when Selfishness came into the world
and men began to quarrel.
The first quarrel of the Cherokee was with a tribe from
the east. Finally, the chiefs of the two tribes met in council to
settle the quarrel. They smoked the pipe and quarreled for seven days
and seven nights.
