In 1819 and 1820 several hundred Cherokee - led by Duwali, a chief from Tennessee - settled along the Sabine, Neches, and Angelina rivers in east Texas.  They soon found themselves ʺcaught between two firesʺ:  The Cherokee ideal of harmony and the reality of factionalism between white settlers pushing westward and western Indians resisting incursion, and between traditional ways and the practical necessity of accommodating to whites.
