The Cherokee have long held that their tribal name is a corruption of Tsálăgĭ or Tsărăgĭ, the name by which they commonly called themselves, and which may be derived from the Choctaw chiluk-ki ‘cave people’, in allusion to the numerous caves in their mountain country. They sometimes also called themselves Ani´-Yûñ´-wiyá , ‘real people,’ or Ani´-Kĭtu´hwagĭ , ‘people of Kituhwa,’ one of their most important ancient settlements. Their northern kinsmen, the Iroquois , called them Oyata’ge‘ronoñ , ‘inhabitants of the cave country’ (Hewitt), and the Delawares and connected tribes called them Kittuwa , from the settlement already seem to be identical with the Rickohockans, who invaded central Virginia in 1658, and with the ancient Talligewi, of Delaware tradition, who were represented to have been driven southward from the upper Ohio River region by the combined forces of the Iroquois and Delawares.
